Artist shows his ‘Pozitives’ at Bean to Cup

Vernon's Wayne Poz shows his art and photo work in new exhibition, Pozitives.

The Bean to Cup is hosting a new art show featuring the work of Wayne Poz.

Born in Vernon in 1963, Poz worked for many years in the hospitality industry as a chef before taking up painting in 1991.

Poz’s work is an eclectic mix of vibrancy and introspection displayed on canvas and captured through photography.

It captures life from a different perspective, offering mystery in such images as paths, doorways and landscapes.

“I selected the name Pozitives for this new show, in hopes that my art and photography will send a positive message or create a positive feel,” said Poz, whose work has been shown throughout B.C.

“My first art show was at a place called Angels in Vernon in 1991. Since then I have done Art in the Park in Kelowna for many years, and have displayed my art in shops in Victoria, Salmon Arm, Kelowna and Kamloops.

“It will be great to display my art at Bean To Cup in my hometown of Vernon.”

Bean to Cup hosts  the new art show in its Downstairs Gallery. Opening night reception is Wednesday from 6:30 to 9 p.m., and a portion of all food and drinks sold will go to the Kindale Developmental Association.

The work will be on display for the summer months.
