The return of Art After Dark at the Vernon Public Art Gallery! Join us for another Art After Dark Party on Friday February 27th at 7:30 p.m. Three times a year at the gallery,  Art After Dark is designed to cultivate the creative community in Vernon by offering a venue for art, food, drinks, music, hands-on art activities and art exhibitions all in one evening.

The first event of its kind offered in Vernon, Art After Dark allows adults to enjoy a soiree style party while having the opportunity to get involved in optional collaborative art activities for all skill levels.  DJ Chrispin will mix up new and old beats allowing guests to mix, mingle and dance. Gourmet appetizers are included with your ticket purchase; enjoy delectable treats such as brownie cheesecake parfait and smoked salmon mousse canapés.  A cash bar will be open, and Okanagan Spirits will serve fabulous cocktails as well as locally crafted beer and wine.

The art activities offered relate to our current exhibition.  This time the focus is “Classic Meets Contemporary”, tying in with the current exhibition Apperception, by Neil McClelland, a new way to look at historical art.  Enjoy a fun selection of optional art activities, including a photo distortion booth (prints available by donation), paper crafts, and Exquisite Corpse; a group drawing game inspired by Surrealism that involves a group of people each drawing a portion of the human (or non-human) figure, however each person does not get to see what the other drew before them, the end results in a very creative and often comical creation.

Support the urban creative community movement at Art After Dark!  This event is sponsored by Woolley & Co. Barristers & Solicitors, and Sun FM.
