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 July 16 and 17 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;

- Jocelyne Lamontagne;
