High Energy 24

St. Albert High School Students

May 2–June 1, 2019 at Art Gallery of St. Albert (19 Perron Street, St. Albert)

Opening Reception & Artwalk: Thursday, May 2 from 6–8:30 pm

Gallery Hours: Tuesday–Saturday: 10 am–5 pm; Thursday: 10–8 pm

Each year local St. Albert high school students and art teachers join forces with the Gallery to present an unpredictable array of artworks. This highly energetic exhibition flaunts the exceptional standard of visual art education provided in our City.

This exceptional exhibition for budding teen artists, blends students’ coursework pieces with new artworks produced especially for the show. Images from popular culture (think: pop icons, fashion and digital media) entice students to explore narratives and ideas central to adolescence and their unique experience of the world.

This year, the annual Challenge Project for the schools is an inter-school collaborative installation. Participating students contribute a small sculptural house that expresses their personal identity, culture or background. The collaboration entitled Diversity in Structure paints a picture of the diversity and cooperation required to build a thriving community.

Visual art inspires students to flourish both inside and out of the classroom, fostering cultural awareness and diversity. The Gallery is dedicated to continuing this vibrant annual exhibition to showcase the hard work and accomplishments of St. Albert youth.
