The exhibit, which runs from February 27 to March 7, 2015, offers elementary and secondary students in Toronto a chance to exhibit their work in a professional gallery without competition. This year’s theme is “Here, Now, Today.”
Bea’s art teacher and several of the insanely talented parents associated with her school got together to support the girls in creating and submitting pieces to this exhibit — and with amazing results. Their action shots and street scenes were out of this world.
Here’s a look at Bea’s piece, Icebreaker:
You’ll find a wide range of interpretions of “Here, Now, Today” at the show. In addition to the work of Bea’s classmates, some of our favourites were K. Medlan of Central Tech’s Untitled 1, a sunrise shot of a large boat, S. Ahmed of John Fraser’s A Beautiful Mind, a black box full of moving wooden figures, R. Stupar of Central Tech’s, Untitled, a black and white shot of a torn basketball net against the clouds, and the Hollycrest Middle School’s collection of colourful blues and reds in nature. [There’s a particular shot of blue sky and clouds above some dark shoots that I would love to have a print of!]
Every single piece in this exhibit is worth having a long, lingering look.
Get there before it’s gone!
