Role of art in community

How does art play a role in the transformation of the community’s understanding of the issues of racism, homophobia and hate-crime? 

How does art play a role in the transformation of the community’s understanding of the issues of racism, homophobia and hate-crime?

Artists are asked to explore and respond to the themes around countering, healing, addressing and transforming these issues in the context of a diverse community. Explorations may also include the diverse responses to the impact and effects of this topic.

Any member of the Comox Valley Art Gallery or the Comox Valley Community Arts Council is being invited to submit art to the annual Member’s Juried Exhibition, presented in partnership with the Community Justice Centre (Comox Valley). Membership to both organizations is open to the public.

This art exhibition, titled Towards Grace, takes places from March 9 to April 20 at the Comox Valley Art Gallery and is an open call community exhibition featuring a diversity of artwork by the Comox Valley and surrounding visual arts community.

All genres of visual arts will be exhibited — examples are drawings, paintings, prints, multi-media, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, photography, and fibre arts. Artwork will be accepted for the exhibition, and after the show is installed, will be juried for recognition.

For details on the exhibition, visit the Comox Valley Art Gallery’s website, visit the gallery in person or phone 250-338-6211.
