Gallery puts out call for 'cannabis-infused art' submissions for March marijuana show, Grassland

The Penticton Art Gallery has put out a call for submissions for its upcoming Grassland exhibit, exploring the impact of marijuana on modern culture.

The exhibition opens on March 17 and will showcase “cannabis-infused art” from all over the world.

Gallery curator Paul Crawford said he first got the idea for such an exhibit about 10 years ago, while he was living in Grand Forks, B.C.

“Living there on the fringe of the Kootenays, just the whole marijuana, pot, cannabis culture thing was so prevalent,” said Crawford.

He didn’t immediately pursue the idea, but said a show this spring seemed fitting with federal legislation looming to legalize marijuana and dispensaries popping up all over the province.
