During the COVID-19 pandemic, the VPAG transitioned educational programming, artist talks, interactive tours of exhibitions with the artist, and signature events like Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts to an online format.
In order to bring the art to the viewer, the VPAG is committed to continuing this virtual experience moving forward. You can look forward to this intro to all of our new online content found on our website www.vernonpublicartgallery.com/online-content
We asked local illustrator, Ashleigh Green, to make this short animation about the VPAG’s transition to the virtual space. Ashleigh holds a BFA in Visual Arts from the University of British Columbia, and has attended multiple Art Residencies around the globe. She specializes in simple yet expressive line drawings, and has worked with everyone from small, local businesses to international brands.
“With the success of our ‘experimental’ virtual programming throughout the spring, the VPAG was able to secure a grant to make this a permanent fixture to our public outreach. Although we still invite you to come and visit the gallery in person, this added component means the exhibitions and programming are available to everyone with access to the internet.” – Dauna Kennedy, Executive Director.
