“There’s Energy in Painting”: Imagine Pandosy Art Festival Showcases Local Talent – Okanagan



It all started with the distribution of fence boards for the neighborhood to be painted and now it has grown into the first Imagine Pandosy art festival in the heart of Pandosy Village in Kelowna.

“It’s a portable mural, we’re going to move it to a blank wall and then move it to the brand new Pandosy Waterfront Park when it’s completed,” said Paul Clark, organizer.

The first phase of Pandosy Waterfront Park is expected to be completed by next year, and while the wait for the new park is underway, organizers are busy planning next year’s Imagine Pandosy art festival.
