  Posted on: January 28, 2022

Looking for an escape from the every day? Then make your way to TRU’s Visual Arts Gallery to see student creativity on display. Currently on exhibit, Call and Response showcases select 2D and 3D artworks.

The fourth annual exhibit runs until Wednesday, Feb. 2, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Call and Response is an annual exhibition that celebrates exceptional artworks created by students enrolled in first-year visual arts courses,” says visual arts Studio Technician and sessional instructor Lea Bucknell. “Brief descriptions of individual course assignments, the calls, are posted alongside groupings of student artworks, the responses. Visitors to the gallery can see how the artworks relate to one another as well as gain an appreciation for the variety produced by individual creativity.”

There are more than 45 student artists with works in this year’s exhibit.

“Congratulations to the many students who have work in the exhibition,” says visual arts Professor Don Lawrence. “And thank you to the faculty members involved in teaching these courses and the gallery committee who helped the students and the visual arts program realize this exhibition.”

There will be a closing reception for the exhibition on Wednesday, Feb. 2 from 1 – 3 p.m. in the art gallery. Please note that COVID restrictions will be in place.

The gallery’s regular hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
