The Department of Fine Arts invites you to the opening reception for the 50th senior undergraduate exhibition at the University of Waterloo. Hosted by the University of Waterloo Art Gallery, the exhibition captures the students’ creativity and the diversity of practices they have been exposed to in the studio arts program. The class shares the following statement:

“As students, we have made a complicated series of connections over the years through the various mediums and disciplines that expose who we are as individual artists as well as a collective student body. Our culminating exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, installations, mixed media, and digital works that explore themes relevant to our interests in identity, community, self-expression, memory, trauma, relationships, gender, and the otherworldly. As students, we experienced online learning in the early stages of our studies before returning to our shared studio space in East Campus Hall. As a cohort, we have overcome isolation and formed unique bonds with our artistic spirit and each other.”

Please join us in celebrating this anniversary showcase of undergraduate creativity, resiliency and achievement.
