Storytellers (November 2020 – April 2021)Part of the “Art is you make of it” series – featuring Jude Clarke, Danielle Krysa and Richard Brodeur.  Their videos are included in the exhibition, playing in a loop in the gallery. This rotating exhibition features works from local Okanagan artists, beginning in November with works by Richard Brodeur, Danielle Krysa, and Jude Clarke and switching in February to feature the works of three new artists. Each featured artist has been chosen to display artwork based on stories of transition, change and the process of waking up and stepping out of a place of darkness and rest toward one of growth and renewal.
Posted (November 2020 – January 2021)Victoria Verge’s work is grounded in her upbringing as a military child. The modern role of the military takes on new meaning in Verge’s work which narrows its focus on the modern “home-front” and the “subculture” that is to be found on Canadian Forces Bases across the country.
