    A solo exhibition by former Associate Professor Deborah Koenker is currently showing at the Kelowna Art Gallery through October 30.  Titled Grapes and Tortillas,  this exhibition focuses on the Okanagan Valley’s Mexican seasonal workers, celebrating their hard work, their contribution to the Canadian economy, and their dedication to their families—from whom they are separated for long periods. These men and women, in British Columbia under the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program (SAWP), provide low-cost work in the area’s greenhouses, farms, vineyards, and orchards for up to eight months of every year.
