The senior art major students celebrated an exhibition opening, “What is a Portrait?” on September 28th. The students were given their summer holidays to explore themselves as well as the genuine meaning of portraiture; they created collections of multifarious portraits.

The artworks were classified into three different sections in the gallery to divide traditional portraits, conceptual self-portraits, including squared abstract diptychs inspired by Anselm Kieffer, and observation drawings of the human figure.

The special feature of this show was that it was not teacher-directed. From the beginning to the end, it was organized and produced by a grade 12 art student, Dana Lee, who is interested in becoming a curator.

Her initial plan for her career was to build work experiences in several galleries downtown during the summer. Instead, Ms.Crawford, the art major teacher, gave her the opportunity to organize a show.

Dana prepared this exceptional show, assisted by grade 11 student, Janice Kim. Dana and the senior art students made this unprecedented exhibition remarkably successful.
