Forest: Breath of Life will explore the multi-faceted nature of forests: as home to a vast number of flora and fauna; as a source of beauty, healing and solace to humans; as a source to be harvested; as an ecosystem under threat; and as a source of every breath we take.

The Cowichan Valley Public Art Gallery is calling for submissions to our February 2021 exhibition: Forest: Breath of Life. We are centrally located in the Cowichan Valley on southern Vancouver Island.

The exhibit will run from Feb. 01 to 26, 2021, and is a project in collaboration with the Sierra Club of BC.

CVPAG will consider recent works, in visual and performing arts, from artists living and working in British Columbia. Minimum size required for 2-dimensional works: 30”x24”. A jury of three arts professionals will review all submissions. Artists accepted will be notified by December 15th, 2020.

Submissions and inquiries to:

If you are interested in submitting to Forest: Breath of Life, e-mail to the curator:

▪ a jpg of each work; 2-D works should be unframed

The Cowichan Valley Public Art Gallery’s aim is to engage, inspire and enrich the Cowichan Valley and beyond through the exhibition, education, collection and interpretation of visual arts created primarily by artists who live and work outside of the Cowichan Valley.

Our exhibits are intended to provoke intellectual inquiry, capture visitors’ imaginations, and encourage debate and discussion. We are also commited to fostering dialogue between artists, both local and international.

Our vision is to do this by mounting a broad and dynamic range of exhibitions, primarily modern and occasionally historical, based on universal issues that affect our lives, recognizing, respecting and engaging with the different perspectives of our audiences.
