March 14, 2019
For over 35 years the Thunder Bay Art Gallery has been proud to support and work cooperatively with Lakehead University’s Visual Arts Department with one of the Gallery’s most popular annual exhibitions – the Lakehead University Visual Arts Department Annual Juried Student and Major Studio Exhibitions.
The public can meet these inspiring young adult artists at the Opening Reception for both Exhibitions on Friday, March 15 at 7:30 pm at the Gallery. Part of this event includes the Lakehead University Visual Arts Awards, being presented to recipients, and the chance for the public to vote on their favourite works of art with ballots for the People’s Choice Award.
Works for the Juried Exhibition are submitted by Visual Arts students from all four years, and selected by a panel of judges. The Major Studio Exhibition is comprised of works by the graduating fourth year class. Both exhibitions have filled the Gallery with a wide variety of creative wonders sure to interest and entertain the public.
Both exhibitions are generously sponsored by Lakehead University Alumni Association and Brokerlink – long-time supporters of the Lakehead University Visual Arts Department.
Both Exhibitions are open to the public and on display until April 7, 2019.
