FRIDAY Arnica presents Kelowna artist Shauna Oddleifson’s exhibition Storytelling. 7 p.m. at the Arnica Gallery, 232 Victoria St. Storytelling questions the ideas of innocence and virtue as characteristics usually applied to children. The exhibition includes intaglio prints set up to tell fictional stories that, on the surface, appear innocent. However, upon closer inspection, these drawings humorous in their depiction contain mortifying endings: a smiling girl pushing her friend off the wrong end of a slide, burying another in a sandbox, or opening a jar of bees to sting other children. The exhibition also contains three-dimensional dolls constructed with found material who play confidantes to the little girl’s plots. Gallery hours are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
