'PARALLEL EXISTENCE' New Artworks About Dreaming Opens June 16

Some cultures believe the dream world is just as real as the waking world. With a creative departure beginning from this viewpoint, Halifax artist Mitchell Wiebe, Calgary artist Siva Pillay, and Vernon artist River Lewis have bridged the two worlds in mixed media drawings and paintings. Fantastical characters emerge with unpredictable storylines and the stage is set for transporting the viewer through visual art experience.

The exhibition runs from June 16 to July 22, 2011. Brew Gallery is located inside the Bean to Brew Coffee House at 3202 - 31st Avenue, next door to the Vernon Public Art Gallery.
