  • Stekyawden Syndrome, the mural in the window gallery can still be seen and is a magical piece to experience at night.
  • North Island Hospital Art Project, community space – see photographs of the installed artwork at the hospital and the full design brief in the CVAG Community Space Monday–Saturday 8am–5pm.

The gallery and the shop are open to the public Tuesday to Saturday, 10am–5pm.Admission is by donation.

The gallery is excited to have a new group of students as part of the CVAG team this summer. Each one brings a special set of skills and as they have the opportunity to learn through practical experience in preparation for their art and design futures.

Currently everyone is working hard preparing for the gallery’s new look. Outside, painting of the of the building’s exterior began this week and inside, the hardworking Lacasse Construction LTD crew begin interior renovations to the gallery’s spaces.

CVAG welcomes visitors throughout these transitions. CVAG programming and the Gallery Shop will remain open to the public Tuesday through Saturday 10am – 5pm.

The CVAG Team wishes you a great summer.
