Revelstoke Secondary School is welcoming you to its third annual student art show. Opening night is Friday, May 8, from 6–9 p.m. at the Revelstoke Visual Art Centre.

The title of the show is “Now, Then, When? Images, Echoes, and Reflections.” It will be the third student art show that RSS, art and drama teacher Theresa Browning, and art centre coordinator Jackie Pendergast have put on. The show will feature approximately 150 pieces, with both two-dimensional and three-dimensional work.

The art show is generally a senior exhibition (grades 10-12) but this year Mrs. Browning has invited exceptional junior students to join the senior students. The pieces put in the show are based on assignments from Visual Arts, Media, Art Foundation, and IDS courses. Some art work is done by the international students who add their own uniqueness to the show.

As in previous years, most student art pieces are for sale. The art show is a superb opportunity for students to get their foot in the door to join the art community.

Six students were chosen to have solo exhibits, including myself (Sarah Boaz), Liam McCabe, Cailin English, Maxine Opatrill, Kayla Fenwick, and Hallie Newfield. Liam and I work mainly with clay, but work with other mediums as well to produce two-dimensional work. Cailin works predominantly with sharpie and acrylics, while Maxine works typically with pencil crayon and acrylics. Kayla and Hallie both work exclusively with acrylics. Solo exhibitors will be producing 10 to 15 pieces that showcase their skills.

Solo exhibitors are required to frame and price all their own work for the experience. They also will have their own write-ups on themselves and their art. Mrs Browning frames most of the other student work; frames are donated to the art class by the RSS Parent Advisory Council and the Revelstoke Visual Art Centre.

A thank you to Mrs. Browning for helping with the RSS student artwork, framing it, and working towards organizing an exhibition for the RSS students. Also a thank you to Jackie Pendergast and her team for hanging and displaying the pieces as well as making the show possible.

“Now, Then, When? Images, Echoes, and Reflections” will showcase 150 art works across a variety of mediums at the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre this month. The Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre is located at 320 Wilson Street. It is open from 12–4 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday. The show runs until June 5.
