Sanaz Busink is one of 14 artists to be featured at the Art in the Desert show later this month at the Osoyoos Desert Centre.

Art in the Garden has a new name, a new look, new artists — and a new location.

In fact, the annual show now goes by the moniker Art in the Desert, paying homage to its new location at the Osoyoos Desert Centre — located just north of Osoyoos off Hwy. 97.

The show, to be held Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., still includes original paintings, pottery, photography and jewelry from local artists.

Patrons wanting to take in the beauty of the Desert Centre can pick up a $3-off admittance coupon at Osoyoos Home Hardware, Imperial Office Pro, Osoyoos Art Gallery, Lady Chaddertons and Olive Twist Estate Winery.

A tour on the Desert Walk is included in the admission fee.

The nearby Oliver Twist Winery will host a wine tasting during the hours of the show.

The show itself will feature the art of 14 local artists, including:

  • Sherri Bridden;
  • Sam Bjelland;
  • Sanaz Busink;
