Art show organizer and Kelowna artist Julia Trops said “When deciding on a theme for this year’s show, we wanted a connection between the winery and the art. The Edge of Night is a melding of the concept of making of a wine, in this case “Night” and the art produced by artists.”

“Ex Nihilo Night was created in honor of the mysterious balance the night brings to our vineyards,” said Ex Nihilo Vineyards Proprietor Decoa Harder.

Fellow proprietor Jeff Harder explains, “The night is a special time that brings an element of sensual being and there is a always a story or two that goes along with that. During the jurying, we saw that every artwork provides a fantasy but it is up to the viewer to decide if they wish to participate.”

He continues: “Of course, there is nothing better than what an Okanagan Night can bring you!”

Participating Vernon artist Roxi Sim-Hermsen: “The OK Erotic Art show offers a venue for the racier side of the artist, and draws a non judgmental crowd that attends knowing they might be titillated and entertained by something a little saucy, cheeky, sensual and erotic.”

“Last year’s opening was one of the best art openings I have been to/participated in.  The venue was lovely, the food divine, the artists open to each other and the crowd appreciative. The energy was electric and it was Fun! ”

Trops said “This year, 2011, there are about half Canadian artists, and half American. Because I had to turn so many overseas artists away this year, for 2012, the show will be open worldwide. As well, it will be exciting because due to the number of entries this year, I am able to offer prizes for Winery’s Choice, second, third and People’s Choice, chosen by Opening Night attendees.”
