After the recent exhibition by talented local artist Babak Golkar, here comes a new exhibition at the West Vancouver Museum, bringing new correspondances to light between the local school district and visual arts. From the West Vancouver Museum:

SD45 One is an exhibition that supports, embraces and showcases the vast range of Visual Arts in School District 45 – West Vancouver, and facilitates a broader vision of how art is experienced in our city. It allows viewers to appreciate the works of young and emerging artists from SD45 alongside established artists who were once educated in West Vancouver public schools. The exhibition facilitates growth and further inquiry into the Visual Arts and will spark both viewers and students’ deeper interest and commitment to the Visual Arts.

The exhibition includes works by current and recently graduated SD45 students, staff and a selected group of internationally acclaimed artists who were once enrolled in the school district, and whose work will provide inspiration to young artists.

Artists included are: Douglas Coupland, Graham Gilmore, Ross Penhall, Ian Wallace, Geoffrey Farmer, Cori Creed, Victor Penner, Xwalacktun, Bobbie Burgers, Ken Wallace, Monique Mees, Tony Pantages and Vincent Massey among others.

The exhibition is organized by art educator Jackie Wong and is curated by Patrik Andersson.
