LAST WEEK TO SEE CURRENT INSTALLATIONS
CVAG is open 10am - 6pm, Wednesday to Saturday
Friends,

This week is the last chance to see Newfoundland artist Marlene Creates' solo exhibition at CVAG. Continue reading to learn about this exhibition and other presentations on at CVAG until September 10. Admission is free, with donations gratefully accepted.

After the show comes down, our exhibition spaces will be temporary closed throughout September and October, as we work on building renovations for increased accessibility and outdoor media improvements. Our retail outlet, Shop:Made, will remain open throughout this time.

Stay tuned via our social media and e-newsletter for announcements about when we reopen in November. We are excited to be presenting work by Michael Fernandes next! 


CVAG is also thrilled to announce that our Film Series is returning this year! If you love film and are between the ages of 16 to 30, you may also be interested in the training provided by CVAG's Youth Media Project. Continue reading to learn more.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
