VPAG Releases New Animated Short Video to Introduce Online Programming
The Vernon Public Art Gallery has secured a grant and commissioned Kelowna illustrator Ashleigh Green to design a new animated video to introduce its virtual programming and online content.
VERNON— During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vernon Public Art Gallery transitioned to an online format to present its educational programming, artist talks, interactive exhibition tours with artists, and signature events such as the Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts.
In order to bring more art to the viewer, the VPAG has recently added a new animated short that introduces all of its virtual content.
“With the success of our experimental virtual programming throughout the spring, the VPAG was able to secure a grant to make this a permanent fixture to our public outreach. Although we still invite you to come and visit the gallery in person, this added component means the exhibitions and programming are available to everyone with access to the internet,” said VPAG Executive Director Dauna Kennedy.
Illustrated by Kelowna artist Ashleigh Green, the video features a colourful illustration of all the VPAG’s programming, from Family Saturdays to Try This at Home art tutorials, and more.
Green holds a BFA in visual arts from the University of British Columbia and has attended multiple art residencies around the globe. She specializes in simple yet expressive line drawings, and has worked with small, local businesses and international brands.
