Gabrielle Strong

A graduate of Emily Carr University, Gabrielle’s practice is split between painting and ceramics and she is interested in mining the ways in which they intersect. Following graduation, she dove into a seven-month Artist Residency at the Vernon Community Arts Centre through the Caetani Cultural Centre’s CeramAiR Program, which ultimately led her to make the Okanagan her home permanently.

Recently she was awarded a major public art commission for RespectFEST to commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary. Funded in part by the Government of Canada, the City of Vernon and the Downtown Vernon Association, Gabrielle enlisted the community to help create a winding river mosaic which is to be installed summer 2018 in the downtown core.
