Polarities & Junctions Opens in November

Applications for the upcoming 2023-2024 YQQ + CV/A Arts and Culture Program closed on October 15th.

The theme for this exhibit is Polarities and Junctions. Polarity in physics is defined as two distinct and opposite poles that can either attract or repel each other. This term is also used to refer to the state of having two opposite or contradictory tendencies, opinions, or perspectives. Polarity as well as convergence can be found in nature, online, within political, social, economic and environmental contexts, and among people’s perspectives. We invite you to consider the polarities you observe and navigate as an artist and the places of convergence and junction where differences can be conciliated in nature, in communities and in global conversations.

The YQQ + CV/A Arts and Culture Program exhibit will open to the public on November 1, 2023 and will be up for public viewing until mid-April 2024.  This year the opening event will coincide with the Chamber of Commerce Members Mixer and the Relaunch of the Compass Gallery and Gift store.

YQQ + CV.A Arts and Culture Program is a fantastic way for artists to gain exposure in the Comox Valley. Over 200,000 people come through the airport during the show. Additionally, neither YQQ nor Comox Valley Arts take commission for work sold, meaning 100% of sales go directly to the artists.
