Dale Matthews 'Orchard Ladders' now in the permanent collection in Summerland

Orchard ladders in Summerland

In 2018 Dale Matthew’s painting titled Orchard Ladders became part of the Summerland Art Gallery permanent collection. This particular piece is striking in both the subject and its tonality and at the same time pulls on the heart strings as it was a familiar sight for locals to see ladders stacked against lovely old wooden barns. While ladders are now replaced mostly by aluminum versions from Rona - Dale manages to preserve Summerland’s history in his stunning works of art.

Dale also teaches workshops at the Summerland Art Gallery and is open to teaching more in the future.

Feel free to contact Dale Matthews to host your own workshop at a venue of your choice as well. Dale’s classes are always informative, lively and great fun.
