East off of Highway 6 and along  Pottery Road is a cheerfully painted, yellow heritage house with a red roof.

The home and studio of Neil and Sherrie Erickson, who moved to the Okanagan 10 years ago, the home has become a hub of artistic activity.

It is where Sherrie teaches yoga during the week, and in the evening the couple hosts concerts, comedy acts, and inspiring movies.

It’s also now the home of an art gallery, located at the back of the property, which also doubles as Sherrie’s yoga studio.

On Friday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m., the Ericksons invite the community to the opening reception of Neil’s first solo exhibition in eight years.

“You can expect to see a wide range of Okanagan landscape acrylics and oils painted on board,” said Sherrie.

“Neil is passionate about his natural surroundings and has always loved the beauty of our lakes and environment here in Vernon.”

Erickson’s  colourful landscapes can be found in many well-loved  collections.

The new gallery is located at 964 Pottery Road in Vernon. Contact Sherrie at 250-260-0878 for more information.
