Along side our rolling exhibitions, we see the CVA gallery space as a community space. We open our doors to the community to use our space for community events, gatherings, performances, art-making and pop up exhibitions. We also find creative ways to use the gallery beyond exhibition space. Have an idea or need a space for your community gathering? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
College Night Open Mic
Over the years we've partnered with various spoken word poetry groups to hold poetry competitions, performances, and art/poetry collaborations.
Starting in 2022 College Night Open Mic has events in the gallery every 3rd Thursday from 7pm-9pm.

Artist Yard Sale 2020
At the start of 2020 we opened up our space to over 20 artists to sell their work yard sale style. Artists paid a table fee but kept all profits made.
We hold this event every January and are hoping to add a fall version as well
Pre-COVID, we partnered with Carmen Bliss to host her monthly Bliss Talks, where she interviewed local creators, entrepreneurs, educators, musicians, and influencers. All events were free and open to the public and often featured local makers selling their goods and even local wine tastings.
