May 28th - June 16th
"SENIORS ART SHOW
MARK R. ISFELD
- Wednesday, May 30th (6 - 9pm)
The Pearl Ellis Gallery and the Isfeld Art
Department invite the public to attend Artbeat, an
exhibition of grade 11/12 art work.
Running from Tuesday May 28- June 16, Artbeat
is a showcase of art produced by a number of different students
from Isfeld Secondary school. With a wide array of works being
presented, in a number of different mediums, the exhibition is
well worth a visit to embrace the creativity of our community’s
talented, young artists.
The Mark Isfeld students of Gary Aylward and Lisa
Chase will show a number of silkscreen pieces, acrylic
paintings, experimental big canvases, clay masks and photography
"It is exciting to see how far the students have
come in one semester, says teacher Gary Aylward who has been
mentoring the students all year, helping them get ready for this
show. “Each of the students has been on a personal journey of
artistic expression and self-discovery; the results are
provocative and stunning.” “Many of students have never been
involved in an art show or even thought of having their work
displayed in a public gallery, so this is an excellent
opportunity for them.” he added.
Two students Johanna Weber and Luna Huebchen
travelled to Europe with the school on the March break and their
artwork reflects their experiences of being in Berlin and
visiting old concentration camps.
Visitors to the show will not be disappointed
according to Chase who said, “Our students are very talented and
their work is diverse.”
There will be an opening night on Wednesday, May
29 from 6-9 pm where many of the artists will be on hand to
discuss work and celebrate their achievements.
