Graduating Artistry: Grad Show 2012

June 19, 2012

Arts, Breaking News, Visual Art

Art. A year of smeared pastels, minute self-portraits, encaustic self-portraits, charcoal chickens, blendered bedrooms, redesigned fridges, tortured buttons, and hairy drawings culminated in this year’s incredible Grad Art Show. The artists were given the freedom to explore their chosen art forms; some created sculptures, others worked in multimedia sewing, and still others dabbled in the realms of product design.The artwork in the show was individual to each artist and all had something personal invested into it, whether that was from the past, the present, or the future.

The opening for “Grad Show 2012” honoured the graduates of this year. Mr. Sarganis, Ms. Crawford, Jane Lee (Grade 11), and Ashley Fraser (Grade 11) gave speeches about the artists and their hard work. Awards were given to students who deserved special recognition in a particular field.

Ji Su Kwak received both the West Award for Conceptual Development, and the Nago Award for Outstanding Artistic Achievement. The Hyeon Award for Mastery in Their Medium went to both Erin Kim for Animation, and Shaila Tobin for Charcoal. Da Hye Lim was the recipient of the Kim/Lee Award for Media Experimentation and Risk Taking, and Ju Young Lee received the Nadeau Award for Persistent Effort and Improvement.

All the artists in the 2012 graduating class brought something unique to the Grad Show, as well as other shows throughout the year, and have left a diverse legacy for next year’s Art Majors. Congratulations on a great year.
