Vernon Community Arts Centre

Centre Gallery

The Centre Gallery of the Vernon Community Arts Centre is a dedicated space for displaying the artwork of both emerging and established artists of all skill levels. These artists are members of the Arts Council of the North Okanagan (ACNO). Work is non juried, but must fit the criteria of the changing monthly themes.


CURRENT:

July 27-August 22, 2018:  Okanagan Summer

For the first part of this month, our Centre Gallery is showcasing an open show, with art work created by members of ACNO (Arts Council of the North Okanagan).  These works have been created with a variety of mediums ranging from pencil crayon, water colour and acrylics, to tile, glass and fabric.  All pieces are inspired by our Okanagan Summers and display the range of landscapes and emotions that our summers evoke.  The show runs July 27 – August 22 and is open to the public for viewing during regular Arts Centre hours.


UPCOMING:

August 24 – September 12, 2018: Inspiring Creativity, an Instructor’s Showcase

We are very excited to announce this upcoming show, which will be dedicated to showcasing our instructors here at the VCAC (Vernon Community Arts Centre).  Our instructors will display an array of works demonstrating their multitude of talents in various mediums.  If you are familiar with some of our instructors, you may not be familiar with some of their hidden talents, so be sure to check out this show!  As we gear up for our fall schedule of classes, we hope to inspire your creativity in whatever form it may take.  The show runs August 24-September 12th, and is open to the public for viewing during regular Arts Centre hours.

September 14 – Sept 26, 2018:  Youth, Teen and Student Show

Youth creativity is what this show is all about!!  Our ACNO (Arts Council of the North Okanagan) members range from age 5 to their early 20’s, with students in kindergarten and university.  Help us celebrate our young local talent between September 14 and September 26, 2018 at the Centre Gallery.  The show is open to the public for viewing during regular Arts Centre hours.
