School of Art 2017 BFA Graduating Exhibition Celebrates Achievements of Students!
On Saturday, April 29, 5:00 – 8:00 pm the halls of ARTlab, centre of the School of Art, will echo with the festive sounds of students, their families, guests and community members checking out the artistic achievements of nearly 30 students in the 2017 Bachelor of Fine Arts Graduating Exhibition. ARTlab will be transformed from a school to an exhibition centre where the hallways, studios and even classrooms will showcase works ranging from paintings, drawings and prints to sculpture installations and video projects.
The exhibition presents and celebrates the growth and achievements of these emerging artists as they complete the BFA honours program, preparing for convocation in a few weeks. Each of the artists is also represented in a catalogue that provides a little background on each of them, and provides an overview of the class of 2017 as a whole.
As they make their way through the many exhibition rooms, visitors are encouraged to hold onto their impressions of the works they see, in order to participate in the People’s Choice Vote. Visitors may vote for their favourite artist, casting a ballot, one per person. The winning artist receives a prize, and voters’ names are entered into a draw for an additional prize.
The 2017 BFA Graduating Exhibition is open daily until Saturday, May 6, 2017.
