Everyone is invited to attend the opening reception tonight from 5 to 8pm at Glendon campus.

Glendon Gallery Student Exhibit PosterWhat should we expect from Glendon’s art classes? That is the question that has come up every March for the past nine years – ever since the launch of Glendon’s drawing/painting class in 2005 and the photography class in 2007. The high attendance in these classes confirms students’ continued interest in the visual arts. These courses allow students to develop their understanding of contemporary art, as well as providing them with an opportunity for their own artistic expression.

During the past years, more than 400 students have benefited from the chance to exhibit their works within a professional framework, as a culmination of their participation in a drawing, painting or photography class. The students’ contributions to this year’s exhibition will confirm the state-of-the-art curriculum of these art courses.
