Twice a year for more than 20 years, the students of North Island College, the Fine Arts department, and Emily Carr University of Art + Design, with the support of the community have put on a gallery show known as the Art Event.
This event displays an eclectic collection of works created by fine arts students including painting, drawing, sculptures, ceramics, photography, prints and more.
The 2013 autumn Art Event happens Nov. 16 from 7 to 11 p.m. and Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Shadbolt Studios on the Comox Valley NIC campus in Courtenay.
Both days include art show, art for sale, food and coffee.
The opening night includes entertainment, silent auction, raffle and cash bar. Admission is free, but donations to support art education are appreciated,
