Art & Art History Exhibit at Blackwood Gallery, UTM


We are pleased to announce the two-part Art and Art History graduate exhibition Up One Side + Down The Other. As the title suggests, each student is transitioning from one phase to another and the exhibitions offer an opportunity to reflect upon the challenges they faced as students of the University of Toronto Mississauga and Sheridan College. The work on display will encompass a variety of studio practices (printmaking, photography, sculpture, video, painting and drawing) while simultaneously showcasing their knowledge of art history and visual culture. Up One Side + Down The Other marks the end of one journey and the beginning of the next.
