Solo Exhibition: Our Okanagan Lifestyle - July 9 to July 23, 2020.
The Lloyd Gallery is pleased to show Robyn Lake's brand new collection of work completed in July, 2020. It is her own portrayal of what makes the Okanagan such a special place for visitors, especially in the summertime, and the reason so many people make the Okanagan their permanent home. Due to social distancing recommendations there will be no official opening for this show. We do encourage you come see the work in person during the show dates, open Monday-Saturday 10am - 5:30pm. Out of town enthusiasts, we will digitally install anything on your own wall, simply send us a room image and which painting you'd like to try out. Follow this link to see more available paintings by Robyn Lake.
Meet the artist between 10am and 2pm on Saturday July 11 at the gallery:
Robyn Lake will be painting outside in front of the gallery on Saturday. She would love to visit with you!

About the Artist
Robyn Lake had her first solo exhibition of watercolours in Penticton 1996. Since then she has moved to painting with oils and acrylics and has continued to develop her representational style, varying her subjects from intimate close up views of flowers and fruit, to panoramic views of the landscape.
Her luscious, sensual paintings reflect her intense love of the land, and the vibrant colours express her emotional response to her subject matter: “I was born in the tropics, where all the colours in the landscape are so intense and I wonder if this hasn’t always remained with me. More than that though, when I observe the landscape, I feel a deep sense of gratitude and joy, and the brilliant colours I use are an expression of this. I want people to feel a sense of this when they look at my work. My 1986 Westfalia is my mobile studio and I usually spend a good part of the year painting outside.
This year however, I have painted both outside and in my studio, where I tried to bring the feel of painting outside into the studio. I have used photographs, sketches and small studies as a starting point and then let my creative side take over and bring my own sense of the world around me onto the canvas.”
Robyn’s vibrant oil and acrylic paintings have been in numerous solo and group exhibitions and are in collections around the globe. they moved into their dream home, where they create beauty, explore, make music, explore, drink wine and generally live happily ever after.
