The Latcham Gallery presents IMAGES 2011/2012: @RT, a group exhibition by the graduating students of Stouffville District Secondary School.  This year, the students bring an exciting perspective on collage and sculpture through the use of multiple media.

Inspired by a trip to the BATA Shoe Museum in Toronto, the class has created shoes by experimenting with a wide range of media including pencils, hot glue, clay, Plexiglas, and even lights.    Exuding extravagance and originality, the shoes come in all different shapes and sizes, representing the many personalities in the class. 

Collages of watercolour, pencil crayon, and other various media will also be featured in @RT.  Interested in expressing their individuality outside of their comfort zones, the students express different themes such as beauty and happiness found in unexpected places, music, culture, and the notion of good art. 

The graduating class takes on the roles involved with planning an exhibition from conception of theme to the unveiling of the opening reception.   Students develop promotional materials, install the exhibition, and will adorn the space with decorations, food and entertainment for the reception.  @RT allowed students to shine as artists, and to learn the curatorial process for those pursuing visual art careers in the future.  Be sure to follow @Latcham_Images on Twitter and like The Latcham Gallery on Facebook.
