What Happens When | Family Day at CVAG – Make Art Drop-In

February 17 2024 / 10:00am - 5:00pm

FAMILY DAY AT CVAG | MAKE ART — Drop-In | All Day | Free Event

Celebrate Family Day with us at CVAG on Saturday, February 17!
Drop in anytime between 10AM – 5PM.

There will be Make Art stations set up for visitors of all ages to create their own work that may be inspired by the work on exhibition by artists Christine Kirouac and Lukas Roy.

Supplies will be on hand for making small booklets/zines, collaging, creating drawings, and building small assemblages/sculptures.

A responsible individual must accompany children and those who need support to participate in the art station opportunities.


The convergent program What Happens When continues at CVAG until March 23, featuring presentations by contemporary artists and community instigators that explore the unexpected:

Christine Kirouac | The Recipe Project
Through video, drawing, sculpture and writing, morbidity is replaced with humor, grief is swapped out for fascination and sorrow is overcome by joy.

Lukas Roy | Familiars
Familiars attempts to break down the barriers between image making and meaning and asks you to question the symbols of your own experiences.

Janet O’Dell – facilitator, Itaru Sasaki – artist-originator | Wind Phone
The Wind Phone is for everyone who has lost a loved one. The phone is an outlet for those who have messages they wish to share with their friends and family. It is a phone for memories and saying the goodbyes you never got to say.


CVAG’s Hub Gallery currently presents two installations from past programming:

Gwen Monnet + Elder, Dr. Evelyn Voyageur | Stolen Sisters
Bringing awareness to missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls through adapted traditional creative practices, and sharing the teaching of cedar and bark weaving.

NIC Digital Design + Development Students | Ctrl + Shift
An installation of students’ work that showcases the power of graphic design to communicate, raise awareness, and inspire action.

CVAG is an accessible space for all. This event is offered at no cost.

DONATIONS: are always welcome and support ongoing make art opportunities.
