The Okanagan Valley is noted for its fabulous climate, orchards and vineyards. It is no surprise that such a landscape would attract such an array of outstanding, world-renowned artists. In The Creative Voice, Gary Pearson records the voices, lives and beliefs of 34 of the Okanagan's most prominent artists. The result is a portrait of how art influences place and how place influences art.
