CVAG’s next program opening Saturday

The Comox Valley Gallery will host the opening of the thematic program Emergent Practice on April 30.

The Comox Valley Gallery will host the opening of the thematic program Emergent Practice on Saturday, April 30, with an artist talk at 1 p.m. and a reception starting at 2 p.m.

Emergent Practice includes two exhibitions, a group show of work by local Fine Arts graduates and a group show of students from Roseberry and Saltwater pre-schools. It highlights diverse arts-based curriculum and research modalities being explored by emerging artists, early learners, contemporary arts centres and educators.

Phenomenology, a group show of students who just earned their Bachelor of Fine Arts, features the work of Kelly Davidson, Lori Kenney, Anita Lawrence, Denise Lawson, Jeanne MacGrotty, Frances Semple, and Trish Smith. They have just graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design extension program at North Island College.

The show links the diverse practice of these emerging artists through their arts-based research centred on phenomenology, a philosophical study of how one experiences, perceives and interprets events and their relationship to them.

There will be a concurrent exhibition presenting the work of students from Roseberry and Saltwater pre-schools.
