One of the best parts of home ownership is making the space your own: buying comfortable furniture, welcoming plants, area rugs, and unique pieces of art.  

And it’s no secret that the Okanagan is home to a vibrant visual art scene.  The works of artists like Ken Gillespie, Robyn Lake, David McLean, Anita Skinner, and Aunaray Clusiau all show off the Okanagan’s inspiring scenery.

From hole-in-the-wall studios to well-established galleries, this post shows you the best places to find original artwork for your Kelowna home.
