A Vibrant Community
As a not-for-profit community art gallery and studio, CVAC showcases established artists, and welcomes new talent to the space. It is the involvement of our Cowichan Valley community that enables us to strive for excellence. Consider becoming a CVAC member (you don’t have to be an artist) or join our volunteer group to help curate, host or serve on a committee. Bring your work experience skills and learn new ones. And consider making a donation. By investing in the arts at the local level, you can directly impact the quality of our programming and the community outreach.
