Even before Covid 19 emerged, many people were isolating from one another, and because of this, facing another kind of health crisis that affects all of us. This timely documentary invites us to reflect on the importance of relationships we have with those around us.
This multi-faceted project encompasses a range of events and activities each day the Gallery is open. The audio and interactive artwork created throughout the project can be visited at any time, and all are encouraged to join in on one of our daily Story Walks or supplementary activities such as food-sharing, panels, and discussions – as they provide a way for us to think and talk about the stories and insights being shared.
We welcome you to walk with us – as we journey through the intimate aspects of a crisis that has deeply impacted our community – in pursuit of meaningful change. The artwork and audio created through this project can be visited: September 30 – November 21 2020 (with the exception of closure on November 11th) Wednesdays + Saturdays / 10am – 4:30pm
COVID protocols will be followed.
The Sid will host two sets of live presentations at 3pm and 7pm tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 19. The live event is by invite only to respect COVID protocols, but they will also live stream the presentation. Visit the Sid’s website to see these works.
We have been honoured to host the powerful exhibition TIME OF THINGS in these extraordinary times. The exhibition will be up for only one more day, and we invite you to experience (or re-experience) this while you can. Masks and physical distancing are required. Bring your own mask or use one that we provide.
We are so pleased that starting this Wednesday, CVAG’s SHOP:MADE will re-open. Check out this selection of locally made, high quality and carefully crafted items when you come to see the exhibition “The Time of Things”, which closes Sept. 11.
In 1977 a small group of artists, inspired and lead by Comox artist Pearl Ellis, formed to establish an arts centre to display and promote study of the arts under the name of Comox Arts Society. In 1980, with interest increasing, it was renamed the Filberg Gallery Association and located on the lower floor of what was then the public library in Comox. As the art community in the Comox Valley continued to develop, volunteers founded what is now the Pearl Ellis Gallery of Fine Arts in 2005. The Gallery is now located upstairs at the same location with the entrance on Comox Avenue.
I recently sat down with my marketing coach and mapped out a course of action to market my latest book, Enchanted With Life. However, what I ended up with was a marketing plan to market myself. I had a hard time with that. But really, isn’t that what life is all about? My work is just an extension of who I am: my skills, talents, hopes, and dreams. I have to make a conscious effort to believe that I am important and that the work I do is important, and then I have to give myself permission to be proud of who I am and proud of what I do.
