Second Annual Student-Run Art & Design Exhibit

November 29, 2012

Loyalist College invites the public to attend Different Strokes, the second annual Art & Design Exhibit on Monday, December 3rd, in the Link Lounge Gallery. 

On display until Tuesday, December 11th at noon, the exhibit features a broad collection of artwork submitted by members of the Quinte Arts Council. Students in the one-year Art & Design Foundation Ontario College Certificate program will curate the exhibit, including artistic canoe paddles that they have created. The paddles will be available for silent auction during the opening, helping to fund a field trip for the students next semester.  

“We are pleased to work with Loyalist College students again this year on the Art & Design Exhibit to help promote artistic talent in our community,” said Carol Feeney, Executive Director of the Quinte Arts Council. “It’s wonderful to be able to connect students with professional artists who they can learn from and collaborate with.”
