Atklokem is an Anglicized Syilx word used by settlers to describe the area of Winfield.
Atklokem, with supporting guest curator David Wilson, consists of artworks from Syilx artists Barb Marchand, Sheldon Louis, Mariel Belanger, and the Okanagan Indian Band Youth Group. Visitors to the Lake Country Art Gallery will have an opportunity to learn about Indigenous art practices, both traditional and contemporary.
The opening reception for Atklokem is Thursday, August 15, from 6-8 p.m. at the Lake Country Art Gallery. The exhibition runs from August 16 to September 29.
