Barbadian exchange students' artwork on display at St. Lawrence College

2012-11-28

BROCKVILLE - Seven St. Lawrence College Fine Arts exchange students from Barbados will display their unique and inspiring artwork in “Art Times Seven”, an art show on display in the Student Lounge from November 28 until December 12.

“Art Times Seven” features a variety of large-scale artworks that explore nature, the cycle of life and the impact Canada has had on the Barbadian students and their artwork over the past four months. From vibrant flowers native to Barbados to the Canadian maple leaf in autumn, discover the sources of inspiration our exchange students have drawn from in their creation of a variety of art mediums, including paintings, sculptural pieces, drawings and mixed media.

“The students have all been impacted in some way by the Canadian culture and environment and have embraced the opportunity to express themselves both through the intense process of self-reflection and art education,” said Andrew Hamilton, Fine Arts program coordinator and professor. “They have learned to focus their abilities over the semester to create a body of artwork. Please come and enjoy.”
