The Brew Gallery, the North Okanagan’s newest art space in downtown Vernon, is opening its fifth exhibition, featuring eight Okanagan artists from Vernon, Lake Country, Summerland and Penticton.

“This new, intriguing exhibition of talented artists plays with a noire theme in dark images that capture the imagination and tell stories of mystery,” said the show’s curator River Lewis.

Artworks include paintings, mixed media, digital creations and photography.

Exhibiting artists are Theresa Stranack and Jackie Lowrie of Vernon, M.L. Hall of Lake Country, Ed Eaton, Scott Hagen, Carol Hermesh, and Michael Hermesh of Summerland, and Johann Wessels of Penticton.

“The artworks are for sale, and it’s a friendly setting where patrons can relax with beverages or lunch while enjoying the exhibition. Visitors are welcome to just view the incredible art,” said Lewis.

The Brew Gallery is a dedicated gallery space located inside the Bean To Brew Coffee House, next door to the Vernon Public Art Gallery.

Noire is now open and will run to Oct. 21. Opening reception is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Brew Gallery hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.
