THIS AMAZING DAY
Thursday 5 September, 5PM-8PM
The VAC, in partnership with the Bonnie McComb Kreye Studio Residency Program and the Vancouver Island School of Art presents a group exhibition featuring work in diverse media by the recent participants of the studio residency.
About the BMK Residency:The Vancouver Island School of Art has worked in partnership with the Kreye family, to establish the Bonnie McComb Kreye Studio Residency Residents have the use of a private garden studio for up to two months. The residency is open to artists working in all media and across disciplines. This is the first residency of its kind in Victoria. The residency has been created by Donald Kreye in memory of his late wife Bonnie McComb Kreye, who was an artist and educator, who devoted her life to making art and to encouraging the creative talents of all those she came in contact with. She understood the power of art to change lives and to enrich society. The family chose to partner with VISA in offering Bonnie’s studio for a short-term artist residency, because, like Bonnie once was, VISA is dedicated to arts education and support of the local art scene and community at large.
