Pictures at an Exhibition
I left Woodhaven early yesterday to visit Katherine Pickering's recently opened exhibition (see detail below) en route to Ranchero Jungen. I did not know that the Vernon Public Art Gallery has four discrete exhibition spaces.
The sandwich board in front of the VPAG was made by Carmen, a young artist and VPAG gallery attendant who recently returned to the Okanagan after completing a BFA at OCAD. Not sure which of Katherine's sculpture paintings Carmen recreated on her sandwich board, but her Nicole Young drawing is clearly based on this one:
Also included at the VPAG is a group exhibition entitled Water: the Sacred Relationship by the Kama? Creative Aboriginal Arts Collective, which includes works by UBCO FCCS MFA classmates Mariel Belanger (see below) and Cori Derickson.
