Blind Tiger Comedy Inviting People From Communities That Are Underrepresented In Comedy To Try Classes
This is the most recent in a string of efforts and initiatives by the Directors of Blind Tiger to break down barriers to access and create space for traditionally sidelined or marginalized people in comedy. At a time where most could sorely use humour in their lives, this exciting creative outlet is being offered online through the Blind Tiger Comedy Digital School and also (for the first time in over a year) In Person at their new safety-first Fresh Air space at the NextDoor Gallery in Vancouver.
“The Next Generation: Young Artists in the Comox Valley” showcases several emerging visual artists, all of them former students of G.P.Vanier, Highland Secondary or Mark R. Isfeld Secondary
Starting June 16 CVAG will expand its hours of operation, the new exhibition “Under One Sky” will open to the public, and the gallery will host community make art projects on its outdoor plaza every Wednesday through the summer.
Kate Bridger, a fabric artist and Sue Parr, a painter worked together several times when they lived in Nelson but it was pure coincidence that they would both move to Vancouver Island in the same year. Bridger now lives in Comox and Parr is in Parksville.
“Twice annually, we look forward to the arrival of new art work for the enjoyment of our
passengers,” said Comox Valley Airport’s CEO, Mike Atkins. “With all of the challenges brought
about by the pandemic, the opportunity to provide our passengers and staff with a curated
selection of high quality, original works from some of the region’s finest artists is most welcome.
The artists capture the beauty of the spectacular region we live in, inspiring hope and optimism
while we patiently await the return to normal, and can invite the public to visit the terminal.”
The Comox Valley Art Gallery is inviting people of all ages to join artist Anne Steves for virtual Make Art Saturdays that are taking place throughout the month of May.
Every Saturday this month from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. , you can make your own collage alongside Steves via zoom.
People are welcome to drop in any time, and stay for as little or as much time as they like.
