Vernon art gallery offers tour of print triennial
The Vernon Public Art Gallery is offering a special art tour of the Okanagan Print Triennial 2012.
The tour runs Saturday, March 31, and begins at the VPAG with a viewing of the exhibition, Penance, by the 2009 OPT solo exhibition award winner Robert Truszkowski.
MJO Tours will then shuttle participants to Kelowna for a tour of this year’s Okanagan Print Triennial, featuring works by 20 artists from North, South and Central America, at the Kelowna Art Gallery.
The tour will followed by a roundtable discussion with participating artists and curators, including UBC Okanagan associate professor Briar Craig, Kelowna Art Gallery curator Liz Wylie, VPAG curator Lubos Culen, and special guests.
There will be some free time to peruse the cultural district of Kelowna before the group will then relax and enjoy a tasty meal and a wine pairing at The Rotten Grape on Bernard Avenue, returning home shortly after.
