Gallery Vertigo 102-3105 28th Ave, Vernon

Gallery Vertigo is pleased to host a solo show by local high school student, Amy Bugera. Her exhibit "A Shockingly Dismal Array of Emotion" will be on display this month, from January 5 to 30th with an Open House being held Saturday, January 16th. Amy says, “These pieces have a wide array of different themes, all correlating to emotions and how they can be expressed. Some of these paintings were completed years ago, others more recently. Most of my work has personal meaning; however I invite you to pull your own interpretations from it. I mainly focus my art around surrealism inspired by my internal experiences.” Click for more details.
