It’s November and you’re sitting surrounded by a pile of empty Halloween candy wrappers.
You’re licking the chocolate off your fingers and looking at the fallen leaves you haven’t gotten around to raking yet.
You begin to feel a twinge of guilt for yet another wasted day when it hits you — you could go to North Island College’s Fall Art Event!
Twice a year for the past 20 years, the students of the North Island College (NIC) Fine Arts Department and Emily Carr University of Art + Design, with the support of the community, put on a gallery show known as the Art Event.
It displays an eclectic collection of work created by the fine arts student, including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, photography, prints and more.
“The Art Event is an invaluable opportunity for students to share their work with each other and the community,” says David Maclean, department chair for the fine arts program at NIC. “This is also a great place to purchase a piece of original art, as many of the students are selling works to fund tuition.”
As always, there will be live entertainment, with acoustic performances by Sue Pyper, Jack Sigurdson and Paul Steffes.
Refreshments for the Art Event have graciously been provided by Quality Foods and Serious Coffee.
The silent auction boasts a wide and unique selection of items and creates a perfect place to pick up a Christmas gift for a special someone while supporting student education.
Join us this Saturday from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Shadbolt Studios on NIC’s Comox Valley Campus.
Admission is free and open to all ages; however, donations are greatly appreciated and are used to alleviate expenses.
