April is here and spring is in the air. The South Okanagan art community is showing signs of growth, just like buds in the trees.
The Oliver Art Gallery is proud to announce that during April it will be featuring the western wildlife art of Oliver artist Cameron Ogilvie.
Ogilvie was born in Scotland, where he graduated from the Glasgow School of Art. In 1963 he immigrated to Canada and resided in Calgary Alberta where he met and married his wife Margaret. Cameron supported himself with a painting and decorating business all the while continuing with his art and education. Between his art both he and his wife became ordained ministers and have taken great interest in community services. In 1980 the Ogilvie family settled in Oliver, where Cameron continues to paint with his artistic skills and does ministry work.
Cameron paints a variety of subjects, but is especially attracted to western themes and wildlife.
Meet the artist ! Come and join the festivities.
The Oliver Art Gallery presently has 20 artists, showing art in a variety of styles, mediums and a great price range. There are also Art Classes on going on the premises.
