Take time to wander some walls and discover your local artists!

Since the closing of The Muir Gallery several years ago, Comox Valley Arts has been looking for innovative ways to overcome the lack of gallery space to feature the collective work of local artists. The valley is home to innumerable artists (touted as the highest per capital in North America) with many many works to show, but the funds and capacity to operate gallery space are not within the budget just now.

However, creative minds come up with creative solutions and now, instead of one gallery, Comox Valley Arts has created an array of galleries by negotiating space for local art in retail establishments.

Most exhibits change quarterly. All are open for submission by Comox Valley Arts Members. (If you're not a member yet, join us today!) All works are for sale at each location. Commissions are lower than gallery standard and sales are negotiated directly with each artist. Each location has a curator/coordinator, and a small sub-committee to help with hanging, receptions, and promotion. If you'd like to be involved in this project, let us know!

Current Locations: 

@ Rawthentic Eatery – 407B 5th Street, Courtenay

@ Tin Town Cafe in Tintown – 2456 Rosewall Crescent, Courtenay

@Motif Music Studio, also in Tintown! – 2384 B Rosewall Crescent

@ Sid Williams Theatre, Lower Lobby – 442 Cliffe Ave, Courtenay

@ Royal LePage Cumberland, the BIG Store – 2706 Dunsmuir St, Cumberland

@ Comox Valley Airport – 1250 Knight Road, Comox

We are actively seeking walls & windows throughout the Comox Valley Region to display member work, and recommend member performances.
