NIC School of Fine Arts and Design Presents: Rande Cook

Time: 6 to 8:30 pm
Location: Stan Hagen Theatre, 2300 Ryan Road, Courtenay
Cost: Admission is free, donations welcome
Join accomplished northwest coast artist Rande Cook for an inspiring evening as part of NIC’s ongoing 2018 Artist Talk Series.

Cook was born in Alert Bay on Vancouver Island. The natural beauty of his surroundings served as inspiration in his early years, as did his grandparents, whom he credits for instilling important life and cultural values. He has solidified his status as a talented artist in several mediums, including wood sculpture, metal work and painting. He trained under mentors in Italy and New York, and his works can be seen in galleries in the US, Canada and around the world. He credits his international travel and exhibitions with a desire to push the boundaries of traditional works such as ceremonial masks and potlatches with performance, carving, photography and painting.
This free public event, hosted by NIC’s School of Fine Arts and Design, runs Thursday, Feb. 22 at the Stan Hagen Theatre at NIC’s Comox Valley campus. The evening also features a reception, local wine, refreshments and the launch of fundraising efforts to support future Artist Talk Series.
