Opportunities to make art at CVAG this summer

Make Art Wednesdays run throughout July and August

There are many opportunities for visitors to make art at the Comox Valley Art Gallery this summer.

Several art-making stations are located throughout the gallery during the current exhibition, and there will be several all-ages Make Art Wednesdays in July and August.

The current exhibition Sooner or Later, which runs until June 30, is a group show of self-portraits.

Visitors are invited to make their own self-portrait for display in the CVAG Community Space.

Sooner or Later includes more than 200 individual art works, in all types of media such as painting and drawing, to video and sculpture. The show is a collaboration between CVAG and the Comox Valley Community Arts Council.

CVAG will also host Make Art Wednesday July 13, 20, 27, and August 10, 17, 24, from 11 a.m. to  1 p.m.

Hosted by gallery staff, artists and volunteers, Make Art Wednesday is open to everyone of all ages. Admission is by donation, and materials are provided by the gallery.

“Inspired by our current exhibitions, arts based inquiry offers possibilities for individual encounters, collaborative processes and material experiments through hands-on art-making,” says gallery curator Angela Somerset.
