Also featured is an exhibit titled Exposed!, a collection of artwork’s created by the hands of the gallery’s members. 

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre presents Alladin’s Lamp, a fusion of circus arts, drama, dance and music, Friday and Saturday night.  

Like reading? How about making? Then pop by Gallery Vertigo Saturday afternoon for a workshop on making chapbooks
