Student’s works showcased at the Burnaby Art Gallery

The Burnaby Art Gallery is showing off work from some of the students within the Burnaby School District in two showcases.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Arts Alive showcase in partnership with the Burnaby School District.

Senior students across the district were asked to make pieces responding to the theme Tapestry of Tales.

These pieces don’t stop at paintings. They use a wide range of materials like wire and clay to portray their creative processes.

This exhibition is happening in the lower gallery but more things are happening upstairs also!

Thresholds is an exhibition featuring the works of seven Burnaby Senior Secondary students in the Artist Apprenticeship Program.

This is the first time any of these students have had their work showcased in an art gallery.

The Artist Apprenticeship Program mentors students wanting to get into the fine arts and invites them to create an exhibition of their works.

Both of these exhibits are on until June 5th, and entrance is by donation.

Get out and see the amazing works and visions of these upcoming artists in Arts Alive, Tapestry of Tales in the lower gallery and Thresholds in the upper gallery at the Burnaby Art Gallery.
