Working by LGBTQIA2S + artists at West Kelowna Grizzli Vineyard – Okanagan

The work of LGBTQIA2S + artists is brought into the spotlight at Grizzli Winery in West Kelowna.

The exhibition includes three artists: photographer Jess Beaudin, interdisciplinary artist Shimshon Obadia, and oil and acrylic artist Teshia Saunders.

“We can not only portray art by famous artists, we can not only display art from big cities or well-known community members … we have to make sure that we offer a platform and a space – especially a room as large as we have here – and make sure we welcome everyone to our community, ”said Breanna Nathorst, Sales and Events Coordinator for Grizzli Winery.
