The Vernon Public Art Gallery continues with its members’ exhibition, with the title and theme, Exposed!

The 76 works of art produced by 46 talented and creative artists not only provides members of the community the opportunity to exhibit their works in a public art gallery at no cost, it also provides a small source of revenue to the VPAG. Part proceeds of all art sales from Exposed! will support ongoing exhibitions and programming.

“We encourage the public to consider purchasing art as a gift this holiday season,” said VPAG executive director Dauna Kennedy Grant. “All the artwork is original, and there is a variety of mediums and subject matters to choose from; everything from sculpture to printmaking, in all different sizes and price ranges.”

Participation in the annual members’ exhibition is one of many benefits to becoming a gallery member, added Kennedy Grant.

Members receive discounts on gift shop merchandise, events, and workshops such as the new Live Model Drawing Series, which continues Dec. 7, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The members’ fee to take the course is only $10, half the cost of what non-members pay.

Also, with the holiday season approaching, the gallery is hosting its second annual members’ appreciation event, Get into the Spirit, on Thursday, Nov. 29 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Sponsored by Okanagan Spirits, members and guests are invited to celebrate another memorable year at the VPAG. The event provides guests with signature drinks from Okanagan Spirits, live vocal and guitar music by Kelowna’s Harley David, and 20 per cent off purchases in the gift shop, and the chance to win fabulous door prizes.

Tickets for Get into the Spirit are needed (members are free and guests are $10 each.) They are available at the VPAG or by calling 250-545-3173.
