Works on Paper is a new exhibition from the collective of artists who work from Art House in  Penticton.

“We are utilizing the unique warehouse environment of Art House Penticton to showcase unframed works on paper that would otherwise sit hidden in stacks unless framed, an expectation of typical gallery shows,” said Jenny Long, a member of the collective. “But this is no typical show. Works on Paper features affordable original artwork due to it’s unframed nature, but with all the richness and depth of each artist’s unique work.”

Works on Paper opens May 21 with a reception starting at 4 p.m. It features the artwork of Charlotte Genge, Derrie Selles, Jessie Dunlop, Jenny Long, Liz Marshall and Susanne Dannenberg. These original art works are available for sale at affordable prices, ranging from $20-$200.

The public are invited to attend the opening celebration. Refreshments will be available with food provided by Mobile Morsels Catering.

Artwork will be on display May 22 to May 24 from noon to 6 p.m. each day at 2345 Government St., Penticton.

Art House, which opened in Nov. 2013 is a professional work space for artists and makers. Members choose to take a studio space, or a smaller storage cupboard. Common work areas and resources create opportunities for inspiration and for collaborative projects to bloom. Some member artists also host art classes and private lessons. More details about the show, the space and upcoming workshops can be found on the website: www.arthousepenticton.com.

Art House hosts occasional exhibitions, organized by member artists, as well and bi-monthly creativity nights called The Art Experiment, open to the public.
