COURTENAY B.C- A new program and exhibit have been added to the Comox Valley Art Gallery.

The new program will be called Constant Change and focuses on bringing communities together to look at
the shifting terrain of shared language, intuitive and resonant gestures and communications – internally and in the world around us.

At Will, and Seeing Through Technology, are both exhibition projects created by Heather Koning and will be featured in the George Sawchuk, South, and Window galleries.

They will run until June 8th of this year and each feature a unique way on interpreting art.

According to Koning, “At Will” will rely on the viewer to interact with the art.

“The sculptures movement requires a concerted effort. To do so involves strength and persistence. The shape at will is left to rest is a negotiated dance and a surrendering of your intentions,” said Koning.

Seeing Through Technology allows you to experience art without the influence of modern technology.

“(It) provides the stark visual backdrop of the rapidly changing technological world and in turn offers a space to tap into your innate ability to experience empathy.”

Also running the same time at the exhibits, In collaboration with CVAG, Spaces VR is sponsoring a creative residency for emerging and established artists.

Artists will be able to present their traditional art practices into the realm of VR for creative exploration.

The technology and art-based experiments will be presented at CVAG during the Constant Change thematic program.

Both exhibits are open and free to the public and will be at the art gallery until June 8th.
