A new Art Gallery for greater Vernon

Why does Greater Vernon need a new art gallery?

  • Over 55,000 people call Greater Vernon home. The VPAG needs to expand to meet the growing needs of our area.
  • A purpose-built facility in a more desirable location would give the VPAG greater exposure, allowing more financial security, driving tourism, and growing the art collection.
  • A lack of adequate classroom space for educational programming and workshops at VPAG means missed opportunities for people of all ages in our community.
  • The 589 historically valuable pieces of artwork in the permanent collection are currently at risk, and artists wanting to contribute to our collection are not doing so.
  • VPAG’s building currently has a ‘B’ rating. Inadequate facilities equal an inability to access larger & international exhibitions from ‘A’ rated galleries.
  • Results in missed arts and culture, economic development, job creation and tourism opportunities for both the gallery and our community.
