Soiree-style art bash

Music, visual art and community coalesced as patrons of all ages and backgrounds joined together in support of the Vernon Public Art Gallery for Art After Dark Saturday, Sept. 30.

People tested their music mettle in Alisdair MacRae and Patrick Lacasse’s Perfect Music: High Voltage, while others dabbled in watercolour galaxy painting inspired by Destanne Norris’s Stellar.

“It’s an opportunity to put on something a little special,” said Dauna Kennedy-Grant, VPAG executive director. “It’s an excuse to get dressed up and kind of change the environment for everyone.”

And what a special night it was.
