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.
