There’s something about the Okanagan Valley—whether it’s the spectacular scenery, incredible people, or amazing wine—that seems to inspire great art. So its little wonder that renowned BC painter Alex Fong makes his home here. Drawing inspiration from the landscape and community around him Alex’s art is vibrant, whimsical and full of life—kind of like Alex himself.

Even if you’re new to watercolour, these workshops are a great opportunity to discover this richly rewarding art from with instruction from a true master. Born in Vancouver in 1956, Alex’s experiments with watercolour began after a course of study in interior design. From there, he developed and refined his style, which began in a traditional oriental vein and evolved into a kind of impressionistic, kaliediscopic approach. His recent work reflects what he calls a “blend of contemporary, oriental and impressionistic influences” conveying “a bouquet of wonder and whimsy”.

Alex’s watercolours have been exhibited across North America for nearly 30 years and his work is featured in both private and corporate collections throughout the continent.

We look forward to seeing you here at Summerland Waterfront Resort for these very special engagements.
