CV/ Art's exhibit, Renewal

The Comox Valley Airport, in partnership with the CV/Arts, is pleased to announce the opening of a brand-new exhibit, encompassing the theme of Renewal. Each year artists within the Airport's extensive mid to northern island catchment are invited to submit work reflecting a particular theme.

This year there are three options for viewing; fully vaccinated members of the public are welcome to visit the terminal to view the show in person (mask protocol is currently in effect), for those unable to attend in person but would like more information, there is a third option to view the show via CV Art's online gallery, featuring the works, as well as videos of the artists speaking about their process and inspiration.

CVAC would like to thank all of the artists for submitting works, regrettably, some very fine works were not included, and we are very grateful to CV Arts for making the difficult decisions for curating the exhibit.

The Renewal show will be on display at Comox Valley Airport until Miid - April, Spring 2022

Then my thoughts/feelings and what came in from the outside will come together and it's done...

Renewal to me means change. This year, I have been exploring with pen ink and decided to use this style on canvas with paint. My new style is giving me a freer approach to what I am trying to say in my work. By changing a once traditionally painted scene from its natural state into a more contemporary style may allow the viewer to have a more personal connection to the work.
