puti kʷala – we are still here

Join syilx artist Sheldon Pierre Louis for a talk about his artistic practice and his work, puti kʷala – we are still here, currently on display at the Kelowna Art Gallery’s satellite space at the Kelowna International Airport. Sheldon Pierre Louis is a member of the syilx Nation, a Councillor at Okanagan Indian Band, a director for the Arts Council of the North Okanagan, and a community leader whose work is influenced by his ancestral roots. He mentors youth from his own and surrounding communities and takes joy in the mutual inspiration fostered through these collaborations.

The virtual talk will be held on Tuesday, September 1, from 12 to 1 pm. It will be broadcast live online as part of the ongoing LunchBox Lectures, which is a partnership between the Kelowna Art Gallery, Sncəwips Heritage Museum, and Kelowna Museums. This event is free and open to the public to attend.
