Opening Reception: Sunday April 22, 2-5 pm
Expressions 43 is the annual exhibition of student artwork that celebrates the next generation of creativity in the Waterloo Region. Artwork made by students in Junior Kindergarten through to Grade 12 are paired with works from the Gallery’s Permanent Collection, highlighting the way art expresses the ideas of the past, present, and future. This year’s theme, Recalibrate, responds to the emergent learning we see in today’s young people and explores the idea that we as humans need time to think, re-think and then recalibrate our thinking to adapt to our ever-changing world.
Creative collaboration is celebrated through the InSight installation, which is the culmination of an artist-in-residency program that connected local students at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School with professional artist Catherine Mellinger to work together on a long term collaborative art project. The results of their shared experience, entitled RE:, will be featured in Expressions 43.
