Airport seeking art that celebrates island living
VANCOUVER, May 21, 2013 /CNW/ - The Comox Valley Airport Commission and the Comox Valley Community Arts Council are seeking submissions for the 2013 Art and Culture Program at the Comox Valley Airport. This year's exhibition entitled: Coastal Explorations - Celebrating Island Living, will run for six months from November 2013 to May 2014.
In this call for submission, the airport is seeking two and three dimensional art pieces that celebrate the unique way of life on Northern Vancouver Island. Art submissions may be in the form of paintings, original prints, photography, mixed media, textiles and/or sculpture.
The Comox Valley Airport (YQQ) is the first point of entry for many Northern Vancouver Island tourists. Part of the airport's responsibility is to help form passengers' first perceptions of the Comox Valley and Northern Vancouver Island. This provides an ideal opportunity for YQQ to host an annual art exhibition featuring the work of local artists.
Open to all artists residing in the Comox Valley Airport's catchment area of Northern Vancouver Island. Boundaries include Parksville, Port Alberni and Ucluelet in the south; the Pacific Ocean to the west; Powell River to the east (including Texada, Denman, Hornby, Quadra, Cortes, Alert Bay and Sointula); and the Pacific Ocean to the north.
Note to Editors: The 2012 People, Places and Environment exhibition for the Art and Culture Program at the Comox Valley Airport will be removed at noon on June 13, 2013. Reporters who wish to follow-up with the artists who displayed their work at this exhibit can contact Jen Alton at: [email protected] to schedule interviews.
