The art exhibition, titled In the Works showcases pieces created by NIC fine art and digital design + development students and features a diverse range of work from all the fine art disciplines including printmaking, video and sound, painting, drawing, ceramics, 3D design, photography, sculpture and integrated practices.
“This event matters so much to students, as they have the opportunity to exhibit their art, sometimes for the first time, in a professional setting. For faculty and staff at NIC, we have the opportunity to celebrate the work of our graduating students at this event as well,” said Elizabeth Russell, department chair, NIC School of Fine Art.
Daytime viewing opportunities and studio tours at the Raven and Shadbolt Studios on NIC's Comox Valley campus are Monday April 25 - Thursday April 28 from 12 to 4pm.
This is the first year that the Fine Arts will be opening all the art studios to the public from printmaking to ceramics with art from each studio on display.
“We are opening up all of the art studios this year because we wish to showcase the work presented in the printmaking and the ceramic studios as well as the other disciplines,” said Russell.
