The Elmvale District High School exhibit culminates in expressive student works created throughout the year involving a variety of art mediums and themes. Under the influential guidance of their instructor, Jeff Adams, the young artists explored the human condition deeply and honestly as only youth can, adding their visual voice to life’s more provocative topics, including mental health, coming of age, and belonging in the world. By processing feelings and thoughts visually, the viewer is impacted by authentic expressions. Delve deep, ponder and appreciate this communicative collection on display only for the month of June. The opening for the exhibit takes place on June 1st from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm at the Stonebridge Gallery, 1 Market Lane, Suite 8, Wasaga Beach, Ontario.
