While a global pandemic stopped most of us from travelling this past year, it encouraged us to be tourists in our own city and enjoy places close to home. What have you come to appreciate about the place we call home, the City of Vernon and the North Okanagan? If you were sending postcards to friends and family abroad, which local hotspots and features would you want them to see and experience?

The Arts Council of the North Okanagan and the Vernon Community Arts Centre invite you to use any artistic medium (paint, print, glass, fibre, clay, metal, wood, etc) and style to showcase the best of the Okanagan, from natural landscapes to manmade environments. Artworks can be three-dimensional or two-dimensional, and do not have to be a literal interpretation of a postcard – although the latter will be most welcomed! We showcase works of both emerging and established artists as long as they fit the theme and follow the prescribed guidelines in the Artist Entry Form. This is not a juried show and you are not required to apply in advance. Please read the artist entry form for full submission details including size restrictions.

Exhibitors must hold a current Arts Council of the North Okanagan (ACNO) membership. If you took out membership through the Vernon Community Arts Centre, this means you are an ACNO Member. To learn about the Arts Centre, or Arts Council, visit our website.
