Abstract

One of the great joys of working in the Fine Arts Building for the past 19 years in that almost every day the building offers up a moveable feast of visual art on display in every conceivable space; to intrigue, amuse and on occasion , provoke us. Whether it is the atrium filled with massive cardboard sculptures, or the halls line with figure drawings and abstract prints or the stairwells (and even on occasion the washrooms) taken up with installations and the odd video display, the evidence of the skilled imaginations at work is everywhere. The culmination of this collective creativity is the annual fourth-year student exhibition in the Art Gallery. The talents of these painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors and manipulators of the new media is self evident. It is also a testament to a very particular and special kind of education that they have received over the past four years in our school. In addition to mastering a variety of highly demanding technical skills whether in the darkroom, at the kiln, on the litho press or in front of a computer screen; these students have learned to exercise their creativity within a contest of historical awareness and cotemporary critical thinking. This has made it possible for them to make imaginative connections between their own realities here on the west coast of Newfoundland at the beginning of the 21st century, and the art and thought of other cultures, other times and other places from the most distant past to the present moment
