Cormier’s in Penticton is a popular Bed & Breakfast, but it also the working studio and gallery of artists and resident owner innkeepers Kena and Lawrence Cormier.
“When we built in 2009, it was purposefully to include an art gallery, working art studio, B&B & home,” says Kena.
The fall is an excellent season to visit Cormier’s Gallery, which is open to the public most days 12-5 pm. “Unfortunately, life sometimes gets in the way, so to ensure we are here, please phone 250-493-3273,” says Kena.
“We offer a huge selection of wall art which includes mixed media, mosaic, rod art, metal wall reliefs and functional fun,” she says. “Both the garden and indoor gallery house many of Lawrence’s metal sculptures in varying prices and sizes from a ten-inch tall crow to a life-sized guy named Harold, riding a bike. The garden is also full of recycled glass sculptures that will provide you with beautiful colour to get you through the dreary winter months.”
If you have something in mind you would like for your home, business or gallery, bring your ideas and talk to Kena and Lawrence about a commission. Special occasion gift certificates are also available.
If you really want to pamper yourself this autumn, check out the availability of Cormier’s B&B and take advantage of their three-night special “Ahh…the Colours of Fall!” In fact, any time you want to get away from it all, Cormier’s is open year-round.
