Airport seeks artists

The CVAC and the Comox Valley Community Arts Council are seeking submissions for the 2012 Art and Culture Program.

The Comox Valley Airport Commission and the Comox Valley Community Arts Council are seeking submissions for the 2012 Art and Culture Program at the Comox Valley Airport.

This year’s exhibition will run from the fall of 2012 to spring of 2013.

In this call for submission, the airport is seeking two and three dimensional art pieces that are representative of the unique people, places and environment of northern Vancouver Island. Art submissions may be in the form of paintings, original prints, photography, mixed media, textiles and/or sculpture.

The Comox Valley Airport (YQQ) has the unique perspective of providing the first point of entry for many northern Vancouver Island tourists. Part of the airport’s responsibility is to help form passengers’ first perceptions of the Comox Valley and its catchment area of northern Vancouver Island. This provides an ideal opportunity for YQQ to host an annual art exhibition featuring the work of local artists.

Open to all artists residing in the Comox Valley Airport’s catchment area of northern Vancouver Island. Boundaries include Parksville, Port Alberni and Ucluelet in the south; the Pacific Ocean to the West; Texada, Denman, Hornby, Quadra and Cortes islands, Alert Bay and Sointula to the east; and the Pacific Ocean to the north.
