The annual Art Studio Open House is a culmination and celebration of the research and creative exploration done by University of Lethbridge Art Studio students throughout the year. Traditionally the day-long public event invites friends, family and the community to explore the studio spaces of undergraduate and graduate art students, filled to the brims with sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, installation, digital media, ceramics, and photography among other art forms.
Part of the celebration is the distribution of the annual Art Awards, recognizing excellence by awarding exemplary students for their outstanding achievements in art practice, community engagement, and scholarship.
Retiring Associate Professor Don Gill was also recognized and celebrated during this year's awards ceremony with a photographic work by alumna Angeline Simon (BFA '18), commissioned by the Department of Art. Congratulations on your retirement, Don!
