Vernon’s Gallery Vertigo welcomes local artists for October exhibition

Ubuntu Five exhibition opening is Oct. 11

A group of five local artists have come together to create an exhibition of humanity.

Ubuntu Five, comprised of Mary Stebbins, Sandi Sasges, Bonnie Jackson, Lois Campbell and Holly Smith, will be featured in Gallery Vertigo’s October exhibition Tuesday through Saturday 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

“Ubuntu is an ancient African term that describes our relationships with others and how those relationships shape who we are,” an Ubuntu Five spokesperson said. “It literally translates as ‘I am because we are.’ It is about community, our interdependence, our diversity. In the words of Desmond Tutu, ‘We belong in a bundle of life.’”
