Comox Valley Arts presents a unique digital experience for folks to safely (and easily) visit artist studios, learn about our local artists and the interesting things they do, and perhaps collect some art themselves.


“This weird and crazy time caused us to rethink a lot of things… how can we re-invent and deliver our programs and projects in a way that’s “safer”, and still create connection between artists and audiences,” says Kera McHugh, tour coordinator.


Enter the Virtual Studio Tour! CVA is excited to announce that they have devised plans for an online Studio Tour that doesn’t involve complicated platforms and logging in and out of things, or special software or devices. It has taken a fair bit of experimentation and a plan is concocted.


Each day, Artists and Audiences can come together in a virtual space and connect.


Audiences will have the chance to:


· wander through virtual studio “booths”


· talk with artists,


· see art work up close and


· watch artists work.


Interested buyers can make appointments directly with the artist for in-person studio visits or purchasing.


A Full Tour Pass is just $10 ($11.50 after fees), and helps support Comox Valley Arts. This gives you access to talk with the artists and visit each one in their “booth”. Visitors can "wander" among the booths as they choose, and stay as long as they like.


Portions of the tour will also be livestreamed to Youtube, for everyone to enjoy (you just can’t interact with artists there).


With a Pass, visitors can drop in any time during the tour and visit the artists who are online that day. See schedule here: ciag.ca


In addition to visiting with the artists, the Main Hall will offer: slideshows, musical guests, recorded interviews, mini workshops and artist talks, and more! There will always be something to watch or listen to.


Artists from throughout the region are welcome to join in, too. It’s not too late to sign up for a “booth” and share your work with art fans and holiday shoppers.


Visit ciag.ca for artist signup and tour passes.
