New Art Exhibit Welcomes Travelers to Kelowna Airport

The art exhibit opened this week at the Kelowna airport

Lake Country’s Wanda Lock was selected by the Kelowna Art Gallery to display four mixed-media paintings at Kelowna Airport.

“We are absolutely thrilled with the possibilities offered by this new dedicated exhibition space,” said Nataley Nagy, Executive Director of the Kelowna Art Gallery. “Plus, it’s hard to miss.”

The four paintings titled Kate and Molly span 40 feet long and eight feet high, and can be seen above the airline’s check-in area.

The title of the work refers to a classic soliloquy involving Molly Bloom – a fictional character from James Joyce’s 1922 novel Ulysses – and singer and songwriter Kate Bush’s 1989 song The Sensual World. They both cross over an iconic seed cake, which Lock has rendered in his signature painterly language.

The exhibition will be visible until June 2023.
