I'm so excited to share the wonderful artwork of Christina Leinemann Knittel! Her ability to play with the magic of the everyday in her artwork will inspire viewers to do the same. Make sure you visit her for an Artisan's Evening at the Blenz on Bernard during the Culture Crawl to meet this lovely artist, and view her beautiful artwork!
My goal is to create fun and whimsy in each and every day. Sitting at my desk with my art supplies is pure bliss for me. The blank page is where I search for truth and beauty. Creating dots, dashes and lines that connect me to the realm of possibility.
Those blank pages become little windows into the world that we miss as we go about our daily lives. they reflect the wonder I feel when I take the time to look around.
My work is inspired by nature and the beauty of everyday, making artwork that connects with people emotionally, beautifies their lives and stirs the imagination. I hope to inspire others by sharing the passions, creations and discoveries along my personal journey.
I am delighted to introduce the wonderful artist Trina Ganson. She can be found at her workspace in Studio 113 at the Rotary Centre during the Culture Crawl. With a keen sense of exploration in both her medium and subject matter - you are guaranteed to experience a sense of wonder and whimsy when you see her work!
Trina Ganson received her diploma of fine arts from Okanagan University College in 2005. She then became an active member of Malaspina PrintmakersStudio on Granville Island Vancouver. After a number of years Ganson returned to the Okanagan to finish her BFA. Trina graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2008, with a BFA majoring in printmaking techniques. Trina Gansonis currently an active member of Studio 113 in the Rotary Centre for the Arts in Kelowna BC.
I'm delighted to announce that the awesomely talented artist Donna Hanlon will have her work on display the evening of the culture crawl! A combination of realism and whimsy make Donna's artwork truly unique and inspiring!
Art is my language. When words cannot communicate what is inside, I paint. In high school I was involved with all the art classes offered. I obtained a Fine Arts Diploma from Okanagan Collage, as well as a Digital Media Design Diploma from the Centre for Arts and Technology. I use an array of mediums and techniques. Actually, I apply a lot of the techniques I learned from digital school (like layering in Photoshop) to my paintings today. I find inspiration from so many different sources: music, my surroundings, as well as other artists from around the world (both past and present).
The wonderful artist and creator Carrie Harper will have her work on view at the heART school location - the beautiful working gallery space that Carrie created this year!

Carrie Harper is a mixed Media artist living in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. Carrie is a student of all things Art and Spirituality, in fact she believes that those things are one and the same. Carrie is inspired by Frida Khalo, Georgia O’keefe, Somerset Studio and her guardian Angels. Most of all she is amazed and inspired by her two children. Carrie Harper studied at The Alberta College of Art and Design in the early 1990’s and through the experience she discovered a language of creativity.She appreciated learning a sense of self as well as technical skills.Art school fed right into her fascination with many creative modes and she immersed herself into any medium available; textiles, ceramics, photography, drawing, art history and more. As a painter her childlike love of process shows up in her mixed media work. Carrie uses collage, paint, drawing materials as well as other unexpected mediums. With each she discovers another facet of art making. For Carrie art is the experience of expression rather than slotting into specific medium or subject.Carrie believes, good art is not necessarily pretty or appealing, the purpose of art is not always to decorate or please. In our world it is art that sets culture, community and the hum of how we live. Art is never a finished work; painting, poem or play. Art is the story of human connection and the way we come together around those things. Recently, Harper has built a cultural hub called heART school at 375 Bernard Avenue in Kelowna (conveniently located above Starbucks). There are seven artists working from the space and countless musicians, poets and dancers that visit and inspire. heART school runs workshops, cultural events and listening nights. 2013 has been an astounding year for growth in arts and heART school is proud to be a part of it all!
