We know spring has finally arrived when the display of blossoming creativity of Medicine Hat and region’s students, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, opens to the sun in our amazing annual School Art exhibition. A Medicine Hat tradition for 35 years, the first School Art exhibition was shown in the spring of 1978 at the previous location of the Art Gallery on Bomford Crescent. School Art has grown from approximately 50 works to over 700 from 41 schools. Paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures, ceramics, photographs, animated and live action video – and some works which are indescribable – impress and inspire viewers with the inventiveness and artistic skills of Medicine Hat students.
Reception refreshments are courtesy of Prairie Rose School Division #8 and presentation materials are courtesy of Medicine Hat School District #76. We thank all volunteers, sponsors, participants, presenters and jurors for their continued support of this program and the promotion of visual arts in our community.
