Sheridan’s student gallery exhibition: Project Project
The Gallery at Sheridan College welcomed students and faculty on Thursday November 12th, 2015 for the opening of its current exhibition, Project Project. The exhibition features studio work by first and second-year Sheridan and UTM art and art history students. The art on display includes samples from the six sub-disciplines of the program: drawing, painting, sculpting, print media, design, and photography. For many students, this is the first time their art work has be displayed in a curated exhibition.The coordinator of Project Project, Sheridan faculty Jay Wilson, describes the exhibition as a “teachable moment” for Art and Art History students. As a professor of Design at Sheridan, Wilson teaches courses to first and third-year students. He explains that student projects, such as the ones on display, are “about students harnessing their own vision— and figuring out their own aesthetic and conceptual concerns. It’s important to let them do what interests them”.
Project Project will be on display in the Gallery until Friday, November 20th, 2015.
