Grad art exhibition at Kariton Gallery

A new exhibition at Kariton Art Gallery showcases the unique multi-media work of 25 local graduating students.

The show features artists from Abbotsford Collegiate, Rick Hansen, Yale, Robert Bateman and MEI secondary schools. Their artwork offers different approaches, themes, styles and techniques. The student were chosen by their teachers to represent their school.

“It’s a huge honour,” said Judy Whyte, executive director of the Abbotsford Arts Council. “It’s a good opportunity for their portfolio to have work shown in a gallery.”

The Graduates Gallery runs March 5-30 at Kariton Art Gallery, 2387 Ware St. An opening reception will be held on March 6 from 1-4 p.m. to meet the artists.
