SEEN IN VANCOUVER #419: New Gallery “Department Of WOW” Opens On Union St.
A new micro gallery called Department of WOW has opened up shop at 110-243 Union Street in the old Good Luck Pop-Up Gallery spot. The project is from local designers Laura Wallace (illustration, print-making), Taryn O’Gorman (jewellery), and Zoe Welch (clothing). What’s with the name? It’s an acronym. Check the first letter of each of their surnames and you get WOW. The shop was already looking pretty sharp over the weekend when the ladies were busily putting it together. It’s now open, so go down and check it out for yourself after (or before) a tasty bowl of ramen right next door at Harvest Community Foods. Good noodles + art = buddies.
