ART’S ISLAND HOME

A Space for Arts, Ideas & Learning

GALLERY STUDIO ANNEX

We are a not-for-profit grassroots community gallery, studio and cultural hub.

Since 1971, the Cowichan Valley Arts Council has championed arts in the community. Providing a destination for artists and art lovers to create, dissect and celebrate great art. More than a gallery space, we’re a thriving cultural hub. An interactive experience that connects artists with audiences in meaningful and unexpected ways.

Youth Arts Show Virtual Exhibition

Art is universal. There aren’t any age requirements & there is no single definition of Art. CVAC is delighted to  display creations from members of the community between the ages of 12 & 20.
