School Art 2015

April 3 to June 7, 2015

Opening Reception: Sunday, April 19 at 2 p.m.
Student Artists Talks: Sunday, May 10 at 2 p.m.

The Mendel Art Gallery is pleased to present the ever-popular School Art exhibition, which has been offered annually for 43 years. Celebrating the excellence of artmaking and creativity among Saskatoon’s young people, the exhibition delights audiences and demonstrates that art is for people of all ages and walks of life. School Art showcases paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, and other works of art by more than 200 students in the city’s elementary and secondary schools. The gallery is proud to work with Saskatoon’s educators and to continue its commitment to art at the primary and secondary levels.

The jury was composed of representatives from Saskatoon Public Schools, Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools, and the gallery. This jury chose at least two works from each school, and three from schools with more than 350 students. In addition, a limited number of works were included on a merit basis.

Sincere thanks to Gillian McPhail of Brevoort Park School, and Allison Treble of St. Peter School, who selected the artworks along with Laura Kinzel from the Mendel Art Gallery. Also appreciated is the support of Rob Revering and Monique Martin of Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools, and Karon Guttormson of Saskatoon Public Schools. Special thanks to Shayla Koroll, Grade 2 student at St. Luke School, whose artwork has been reproduced on the exhibition poster. The gallery gratefully acknowledges the support of PotashCorp, sponsor of this exhibition and other school programming.

School Art is organized by Laura Kinzel, Public Programs Coordinator at the Mendel Art Gallery.
