Twice a year for the past 20 years, the students of North Island College’s Fine Arts Department and the Emily Carr University of Art
+ Design, with the support of the community, host a gallery show known as the Art Event.
This showcase and celebration offers an eclectic collection of works created by the Fine Arts program students, including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, photography, prints, and more, as well as music provided by DJ Max Whittheoft.
“The Art Event provides students an opportunity to present their work and gives the public a chance to view said work and support up-and-coming artists,” says student Taryn Goodwin. “The Art Event is a great opportunity to showcase what NIC students are creating and many of the pieces are for sale.”
There will also be a ceramic mug sale and a silent auction boasting a wide collection of items. The Art Event is a perfect place to pick up a Christmas gift for a special someone, enjoy an evening out with live entertainment and delicious food and beverage, all while supporting student education.
This year’s Art Event will take place this Saturday from 7 to 11
p.m. in the Shadbolt Studios, on NIC’s Comox Valley campus. This public event is open to all ages and admission is free; however, donations are greatly appreciated and are used to support the event.
