In keeping with the original philosophy and impact of art on the creation of the winery, Ex Nihilo specifically designed the tasting room to showcase local artists. The connection between wine and art is evident throughout the valley, and Ex Nihilo has established itself as a premiere destination for fine wine and fine art.
Using our established name, Ex Nihilo, and applying it to art, we decided on Creatio Ex Nihilo, or “creation from nothing” for our gallery. Many artists understand this concept as one they face daily as the basis for the creation of original works.
The artists represented at Creatio Ex Nihilo are hand selected. We exclusively show works by emerging and distinguished artists residing in the Okanagan Valley. With a focus on contemporary figurative and conceptual abstract art, we exhibit works that demonstrate highly developed technique, material understanding, professional finishing, and creative expression
Artists interested in showing at Creatio Ex Nihilo and feel their artwork would be a good fit are encouraged to apply. Submissions are reviewed on a monthly basis and may be made by email or post.
Please ensure the following are included:
– A copy of your Curriculum Vitae including exhibition history, gallery affiliations and association memberships.
– Artist Statement/Artist Biography
– 5-10 photos of your work, with accompanying list of materials used, size, date completed and retail price.
