The North Okanagan Artists Alternative and Gallery Vertigo are inviting all artists to participate in its annual  fundraising exhibition,  Almost Famous.

“We are reaching out to the community to donate their own created versions of famous, historical masterpieces,’ said gallery director Trista Bassett.

Any medium of art will be accepted.

“Artists may re-create precisely, put their own creative spin on it, or create a version similar to the original but in a different medium (for example re-creating a stained glass piece in acrylic),” said Bassett.

All artwork will be auctioned off at the conclusion of the exhibition to raise funds in support of Gallery Vertigo exhibitions and programming.

Deadline for delivery of finished pieces to the gallery is Jan. 31 by 4 p.m.  Pieces will be hung in the gallery from Feb. 3 to 20.

The Almost Famous fundraising auction is Feb. 21 at the Vernon Community Arts Centre.
