Virtual Gallery: Painter Lyse Deselliers opens solo show at The Art Gallery Osoyoos
Painter Lyse Deselliers opened a solo exhibition of her work on Thursday, April 1 at The Art Gallery Osoyoos. The show, “Our Lakes: Connecting the Dots,” runs until Saturday, April 24, 2021.
The theme of the show is the lakes of the Okanagan basin and the waterways that connect them. Deselliers has gathered comments from people in the communities of the Okanagan who are active in protecting and celebrating these lakes, which she displays with her paintings.
Born in Quebec City, Deselliers has pursued a career as a veterinarian in Ottawa and Calgary. She moved to Penticton with her family in 2016.
Deselliers developed her artistic skills taking night classes at the Alberta College of Art and studying under Karen Swearengen. She is a member of the Canadian Federation of Artists and has exhibited her work widely. Deselliers is also a member of the Okanagan Art Gallery in Osoyoos, where more of her work is on display.
She mainly works with acrylic on canvas.
The Art Gallery Osoyoos is located at 8713 Main Street in Osoyoos, B.C., just west of Town Hall. Gallery hours are noon to 4 p.m., Wednesday to Saturday. Covid-19 safety measures are in effect at the gallery.
