Celebrate local art in the North Okanagan

With the fast approaching summer, Vernon will soon be home to the arts in the Okanagan

With the fast-approaching summer, Vernon will soon be home to the arts in the Okanagan.

Found within this print issue of The Morning Star is the 2017 Arts and Cultural Guide produced by the Arts Council of the North Okanagan (ACNO).

“It is packed full of information on upcoming events, classes and some great stories about our local artists,” said ACNO executive director Richard Kerton.

“If you’re interested in learning about dance, painting, writing, or pottery et cetera, we can help. This guide has quick reference pages to help you find out more about the arts in the Greater Vernon area.”

The guide’s events section gives a taste of what’s happening in Vernon throughout the year. Take a look inside the guide to read about some of our artists who call the North Okanagan, and Vernon, home.

“If you haven’t toured the local murals, there is a treat in it for you,” said Kerton.

“Take a short mini tour with the family and get familiar with the history of Vernon through public mural displays. It is free and a great way to spend a half-hour walk downtown.”

The guide seeks to help Vernonites celebrate our local art and culture as much as possible.

“Make art a regular part of your life.”

The Arts Council of the North Okanagan is a non-profit seeking to stimulate, develop and support arts and culture in the North Okanagan. For more information, visit www.acno.ca.
