First we see, then we communicate the seen into utterances, sounds, performances, text and imagery. These expressions, in turn, evoke new responses. And so it goes image to text to image.
How do we communicate what we see, experience, and are passionate about? How do these expressions inspire the imagination of others? In turn, how are responses translated and illustrated?
Individual works and collaborations by artists, performers, writers, classrooms and groups have contributed their responses to the Image to Text to Image: Creating Dialogue thematic. Imagery, text, sculptures, assemblages, installations, performances and make art engagement opportunities offer the community many points of entry into the dialogue.
In CVAG’s South Gallery and Window Space, works created by individual artists and collaborative teams express a wide range of response to the thematic for the Comox Valley Art Gallery and Comox Valley Arts community exhibition, Image to Text to Image. Throughout the duration of the program, a community engagement make art station within the gallery will provide visitors with opportunities to participate in the ongoing thematic dialogue.
