Gallery Vertigo is presenting solo exhibitions by two Vernon artists from now to Aug. 22.
In Gallery One, award-winning artist Beryl Beaupre exhibits her oil paintings inspired by the natural world.
Beaupre believes that “creating art is a process of accepting the heritage that the people (Aboriginal, Metis and Inuit) were taught to deny.”
“The spirit speaks through the creative process and is honoured as part of who we are,” she said.
In Gallery Two, Devon Muhlert presents Washed up on the Other Shore, a mixed-media presentation featuring Newfoundland beach objects, photographs and 3-D pieces.
Muhlert finds a unifying theme in the “hodge-podge of unrelated items life throws our way.”
The exhibition opening and artist reception takes place Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
