Watercolours featured at this Month’s Discover Art Saturday

Discover Art Saturday is a family-friendly art making project on the second Saturday of every month at the Comox Valley Art Gallery.

It will be a full day at the Comox Valley Art Gallery  Saturday (June 14), with a family-friendly Discover Art project, two performances on the gallery patio, and an art installation in the gallery window.

This month’s Discover Art Saturday will focus on watercolour experiments.  This interactive make art project runs from 2 to 4 p.m., and is hosted by gallery staff and volunteers.

Admission is by donation, materials are provided, the activity is for all ages, and everyone is welcome.

“The theme of this month’s ‘Discover Art Saturday’ is watercolours, so people should dress accordingly,” says CVAG curator Angela Somerset. “It will be a lot of fun, but kids especially are advised to wear their messy clothes.”

CVAG’s ongoing Windows Project, choreographed by Carrie Tannant, will continue on Saturday with two performances on the gallery patio from 2 to 4 p.m. Avanh will conduct “Action Painting” and TaraLee Houston  will conduct an interactive quilting bee “Creating an Earth Quilt”.

Saturday will also be the final day to view “Soft movements: floating and falling”, a window installation constructed by visiting Winnipeg artist Alex Poruchnyk.

Other coming events at the gallery include an opening reception on the evening of June 27 for three new exhibits, including “The Book of George: The Life and Art of George Sawchuk”.

CVAG’s Discover Art Saturday takes place every month on the second Saturday. In July and August the project will run on summer hours, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. On July 12 the theme will be: bookworks and found objects. On Aug. 9 the theme will be: recycled + upcycled = art.

The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the gift shop is open Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
