Vernon’s artist-run gallery, Gallery Vertigo, is reaching out to the local arts community to participate in its annual fundraiser, Almost Famous.

The gallery is seeking fabulous fakes —famous art masterpieces re-created and reinterpreted by local artists— for the 16th annual event, which this year will be held Nov. 2 at the Vernon Community Arts Centre in Polson Park.

The art will be displayed pre-event at Gallery Vertigo in downtown Vernon.

“New this year, the works will also be featured and promoted in an online exhibition,” said Michelle Mitchell, gallery director.

Contributing artists receive complimentary admission to the event. Deadline to participate is Sept. 30 at 5 p.m., with art due Oct. 21 at 5 p.m.

Contact Gallery Vertigo at info@galleryvertigo.com for a submission form.
