Art Student Open House, Apr. 23-24

Once again this spring, the University of Lethbridge Department of Art opens its studios and workshops to welcome the public.

On April 23-24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, the Art Student Open House will be held.

"We want people to experience the diversity and excellence of work by students in art courses," says Annie Martin, art faculty advisor to the project, which is largely organized by art students. "Visitors experience artwork in a wide array of media, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, print, installation, multimedia, and video, by both undergraduate and Master of Fine Arts students. This is a great opportunity to see work by the next generation of artists."

The open house also provides an opportunity for the public to talk with students about their art practices and take a look at the excellent art facilities. Students, faculty and technical staff are on hand to answer questions and people can get guided tours on a drop-in basis by stopping at the welcome table near the stairs on the 8th level of the Centre for the Arts. School tours can be arranged by contacting Nicole Hembroff (

The awards for excellence in Art studio and Art History/Museum Studies will be held at 4:30 p.m. in W817 on Apr. 24.

"Join us to celebrate the achievements of our students as we announce the recipients of a number of awards for excellence," says Martin. "Everyone is welcome."
