Grenfell BFA students showcase their work as they graduate
Students about to earn a degree in visual arts from Memorial University's Grenfell campus began to show off their work to the public this week.
The exhibit titled Coalesce opened on Thursday, featuring pieces by the Bachelor of Fine Arts graduates.
The show has taken over the Grenfell Art Gallery and includes painting, printmaking, and photography.
Gallery Director Charlotte Jones says the graduating class has been working hard to reach this goal.
"It's been exciting, it's been fun," said Jones. "It's not only just the last two weeks. We start planning this in January."
Applying skills learned in the program
Fourth-year student Shardi Janes has created a final project called "Figure."
The piece stands a towering seven-and-a-half feet tall and is made of metal and covered with painted plaster.
To complete it, Janes put in months of work, and learned a new skill.
"In the course for sculpturing, you actually learn how to weld," said Janes. "Its part of the program, so I learned how and used those skills to make it."
Rumbolt decided to record all the lines drawn in a single end of curling and then depict them on glass.
At the exhibit she is displaying two pieces, each based off of a single end of curling from an Olympic Gold medal game.
The exhibit runs until May 17.
