As You Are – E-Program / Printed Matter

June 6 2015

As You Are is a group show featuring three local emerging aritists who have earned their degrees from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design external BFA program, offered in partnership with the Fine Arts Department at the Comox Valley North Island College campus. Like many contemporary artists, these three recent graduates utilize a variety of processes and diverse formats in their art making to realize their ideas.  A few months ago, while the students were completing their course work, we began a dialogue to imagine the exhibition As You Are, with an emphasis on bridging art school studio practice with gallery presentation.  This process deepened throughout the exhibition installation.  Seeing their work in a broader context, the artists shifted into new territory and gained momentum in their independent practice.  The projects became more refined and eexpansive inrelation to each other’s work and the public gallery site.
