Immerse In Art
The Gallery acts as a focal point for ideas presented in all manner of styles, which operate on both intellectual and tangible levels. This availability of art is not only an important aspect of culture for the broader community who view it, but also a valuable part of maintaining a healthy collegial environment for the CBC campus community.
The Esvelt Gallery brings art from visiting artists, faculty, and students through sponsorship from ASCBC and the Art Department. Our desire is to provide an artistic experience through a variety of exhibitions, artist lectures, workshops, and demonstrations, all of which are open to the student body and the public.
Admission is free and the public is welcome.
Art is an experience

Wood has exhibited her work locally and internationally for over ten years. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘Shirtsleeves & Ribbons’ at the White River Valley Museum, ‘Soft Systems’ at The Vestibule (2022), and ‘Daylights’ with Shunpike Storefronts (2022). She is the gracious recipient of the Art Projects: Individuals program (4Culture 2022),1-year Artist Grant (Bildende Kunstneres Hjelpefond 2020), the Diversestipend For Nyutdannede Kunstnere (Arts Council Norway 2018) and the GAP Grant (Artist Trust 2014).
‘A Magenta Echo’ is an examination of form, of place, of tapestry. By using digital jacquard weaving, a medium that balances handwork and computer programming, artist Allyce Wood draws together heritage textile techniques with her own language of aesthetics.
Through the use of digital and handmade processes, artist Allyce Wood makes textiles with a focus on digital Jacquard tapestries. To her, the loom acts as a mediator between traditional and computerized technologies, offering a way to combine online and offline experiences into images in cotton and wool. As a collector of technologies and threads, Wood weaves with deep consideration for her materials and the generations of weavers who came before and will come after. ‘A Magenta Echo’ showcases tapestries that demonstrate her passion for systems and information-sharing–these being cornerstones of the weaving community as well as person-to-person connections.
This exhibition brims with lush textures, hand-dyed yarns, and evocative images. Flowers, water systems, and ribbons are woven within the structures of her cloth to represent the intricacy of connection and the flowing ways we bond with one another over time. The intrinsic warmth of these pieces contributes to a sense of familiarity and optimism.
