Meet the Artist

 A partnership between the Monashee Arts Council and the Lumby Branch of Okanagan Regional Library


July's Artist is Amber Kusmer,

Monashee Arts Council Member

Artist statement:

Art is in my blood and soul. My father was an oil painter and very early on I was taught about art. I believe that art, be it poetry, painting, music, sculpture...is our human expression and celebration of the world around us.

In college I took various art classes and then as a young adult I continued to take classes in watercolors and pottery. I did spend a large part of my life away from art, using my left brain in dealing with numbers and computers, ah the almighty dollar called. However, I have found that I am happiest when I am able to create.

About nine years ago I started taking classes in pottery again, moving on to watercolor classes. Recently I started using acrylics, painting scenes of places where I have been and places I would like to see. Currently I am enjoying classes with Artistic Connections.

     July 10th Program #1 - That's Gross    1:00 - 2:30

During this program, we will explore some weird but true human and animal facts. We will have Kara Heal, Okanagan and Similkameen Invasive Species Society (OASISS), talk to us about the invasive species we should be aware of. We will be doing some science experiments, playing games and solving puzzles.

Kara Heal from OASISS taught us about mussels and "rock snot".

Ella and Ava made theirs pink!

Samson and Tobin made theirs blue.


We learned about herbivores, carnivores and omnivores and made animal scat.
