The Comox Valley Art Gallery will host an artist/curatorial talk and reception Saturday, March 14, starting at 1pm, to mark the opening of “The Time of Things: The Continuum of Indigenous Customary Practices into Contemporary Art.”
The exhibition is guest-curated by visual artist, researcher and curator France Trépanier. It features the work of five contemporary Indigenous artists from Vancouver Island, Montreal, and Inuvialuit: Daphne Boyer, Maureen Bruben, Susan Pavel, Skeena Reece and Maika Echasis Swan.
“This year’s exhibit has been crafted to tell a story through the print, that’s the reason for printing an image… to tell a story to the viewer,” says CVPS Showcase coordinator Norm Prince. This year’s exhibit will showcase both the technical and creative skills of the photographers, and images range from landscapes/wildlife to cityscapes and multiple exposed abstracts, printed in both colour and black and white.
We are sad to announce this event has been canceled due to ongoing public health concerns.
DOUBT, A PARABLE by American playwright, screenwriter and director, John Patrick Shanley, is a tightly-woven mystery. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play is an eloquent, provocative investigation of elusive truth and terrible consequence, compelling and thought-provoking theatre.

You’ve got one more week to visit (or revisit) our IN THE WATER convergent program, which features KC Adams’ exhibition BIRCHBARK TECHNOLOGY, and the community incubators WATER (re)SOURCE and ROOT LOVE.
Through a Different Lens, showing at the Pearl Ellis Gallery February 18-March 7, is their first exhibit of prints. “It was a scramble to put this show together. The opportunity came when someone dropped out of the Gallery’s 2020 schedule, we had a few weeks to each select five prints. There wasn’t time to develop a unified theme, so it is an eclectic collection of images,” said Tony Gusman.
People are also invited to participate in the ROOT LOVE community incubator and exhibition. Bring non-invasive plant cuttings to the gallery for rooting in water in the living wall installation in the CVAG window gallery. In exchange, you can take home rooted plants from the Gallery.
