The show includes the work of students, emerging artists, and professional artists who have participated in the programs, and showcases works at various stages of development. From sketches and studies to completed works, a variety of art mediums and formats are on display.

This exhibit shows the work of 6-10 invited artists who have on display one piece of early work, two or three sketches, as well as one finished piece. All other participants have the opportunity to show one or two pieces of work which were started at the Alta Lake Station House, as well as showcase any work of the view from the house or of the house itself.

Whistler Secondary School Student Art Show

March 12th - April 1st, 2015

EVENING RECEPTION: Thursday March 12, 2015, Millennium Place

Whistler Secondary School’s senior Art students are having a group exhibition of their work in The Gallery at Millennium Place.

Throughout the course of this past semester, the students were required to create projects using a variety of different media.  One of their final assignments was to create a “Major Personal Project”. This allowed them to create a piece(s) using their preferred medium. We have several acrylic paintings in the exhibition as well as some drawings and some decorated hand drums that students created in a unit that we did in conjunction with members of the local aboriginal communities.

The talent on display at this event is outstanding. Some pieces will be available for sale, so come on out and support your local artists!

An opening reception will take place on Thursday March 12, 2015 This is also the opening night of “Snow White” the school’s theatrical production.


UPCOMING EXHIBIT

SACRED HEADWATERS

 April 7-June 7  |   The Gallery at Millennium  Place  |  Free Admission

ARTIST TALK:  Monday, April 27th | Stay tuned for more information

This art show will aim to publicize this critical issue and support the continued well-being of these important headwaters. The free exhibit will include photography from National Geographic’s Paul Colangelo and artwork from several First Nations and BC community members. The exhibit will be a visual celebration of a breathtakingly beautiful, fragile, and important land. This land not only supports an intricate and rich ecology, but also provides home, life, and livelihood to everyone in the area and downstream of the three rivers that have their source here – the Skeena, the Nass and the Stikine.  

The show will also bring people together to see beauty, hear about the history of the area, and learn about why the Tahltan and their downstream neighbours have been fighting to keep resource development in the area sane, ethical, and safe. Funds raised from this initiative will be donated to the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition.

Learn more about the region, the environmental issues and the artists involved.
