Our annual student art show was held at an exciting new location this year. Sight Unseen wowed visitors at The Forks Market from April 29 to May 5, 2019.
“I think it is a great location where we will be able to engage a new audience. There are many people in from out of town visiting the Forks; it is always hopping with various events and tons of people, young and old, wanting to be out in our city, meeting up and getting inspired,” shared art consultant, Allison Moore. “It is literally the heart of Winnipeg where the Red and the Assiniboine meet, and for us it is exciting to be trying out a new venue.”
The show featured artwork from students across Pembina Trails. There was a variety of amazing pieces that used different mediums such as pencil, paint, sculpture and much more. The audience was treated to the same creativity and talent from past years, but with a new twist.
“We are looking forward to connecting with this new and diverse audience through a scavenger hunt that people can use to help enrich their experience of our student artwork as well as a responsive art card where people will be able to respond to the art by creating their own work. I think it will be exciting to see and hear what people experience when they come into contact with the fresh and original works that our students are sharing. This will be kind of an experimental year and hopefully we can grow this event into something bigger in the future.”
We wound like to thank our community for taking the time to support our young artists.
