We are very happy to have some amazing art on our walls from talented local artist Liz Dumontet. It will be up all month so come down and enjoy in person!
Liz Dumontet was born in Penticton British Columbia and was raised in Kelowna British Columbia. She graduated from Kelowna Secondary School in 2008 with a french immersion dogwood, and graduated in 2012 with a degree in Fine Arts from the University of British Columbia Okanagan.
Liz Dumontet and Dylan Ranney co-own Tandem Studios, an artist studio dedicated to their collaborative art practice.
It is through Tandem Studios that they paint murals in the Okanagan.
From Tandem Studios, they hope to also produce animation, sculpture, books, illustration, and computer design work. From 2011-2012, Tandem Studios has produced seven large-scale murals, six of which are outdoors. From her solo body of work, Liz has worked in portrait painting, abstract painting, animation, video, installation, and illustration. In 2010-2011, Liz Dumontet worked in 3D game design, and in 2012, was teaching beginner art lessons for children and adults alike. Liz is currently working on her sixth painting series and illustrating a children’s book. With a few solo projects on the horizon and many prospective projects for Tandem Studios, she is quickly building up a repertoire of work and has a portfolio to show for it.
Liz Dumontet currently has artwork for sale at the Warehouse gallery in Kelowna on Ellis street.

Streaming Cafe is proud to present Dear Rouge – 2012 Winner of The PEAK Performance Project with special guest Bed of Stars on their Western Canada tour in support of their new EP release, “Kids Wanna Know”. Dear Rouge (Husband/Wife duo, Drew and Danielle McTaggart) are making a return visit to Kelowna on Thursday January 31, 2013 at Streaming Cafe.
Upon hearing their song, You Step Out Of Nowhere, one has to wonder if Dear Rouge is referring to themselves. With the release of their debut EP, Heads Up Watch Out (released in April 2012), Vancouver-based duo hit the scene with an incredibly accomplished set of songs, production and presence. Now, only six months after their debut release, Dear Rouge have followed up with the five track, Kids Wanna Know EP (released in October 2012).
If this infectious one-two combo wasn’t enough to punch their way into the hearts of alternative music fans, they’re also the 2012 Winner of The PEAK Performance Project, the biggest radio station artist development project in Canada. The PEAK Performance Project is a professional development program to help new and emerging artists create careers in the music industry, with the top prize of $102,700.00 to the winning band.
It doesn’t take long to see that Dear Rouge is a fully realized project, from conception to execution, created and crafted from a perspective only years of professional touring, performing and writing can bring.
