The upcoming SOPA “Art Party” event is of great importance to our mission of nurturing young artists in Kelowna. Starting at 7PM, this exclusive ticketed event aims to entertain, educate, and gather the community in support of local arts.

With Jon Campbell and Jay Blackford hosting, along with community members’ sponsorship and donations, we’re set to inspire and foster creativity. Unconventional Hospitality groups Salt and Brick and Pretty Not Bad will provide canapés and a cash bar.

Proceeds will go towards the SOPA Fine Arts Emerging Artist Bursary Award, supporting financially disadvantaged art students through a partnership with UBC Okanagan.

This event is your unique opportunity to connect with the vibrant artistic community in Kelowna!
