The University of Waterloo Art Gallery, working in conjunction with the Department of Fine Arts, is sad to announce that we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's senior undergraduate exhibition which was scheduled to open this week.
In considering public health and University of Waterloo directives to limit the spread of COVID-19 we felt it was necessary to make this difficult decision.
We want to acknowledge the hard work of the fourth year honours students completing the Fine Arts undergraduate degree program and thank them for their support and patience during this unpredictable situation. We look forward to re-scheduling this event when it is considered appropriate to do so and celebrating the achievements of our students.
UWAG (University of Waterloo Art Gallery) will also remain closed until further notice.
The Fine Arts Department and the UWAG present the 46th Senior Undergraduate Exhibition, interlude. Please join us for this celebration of emerging artists.
Featured artists: Sophie Barber, Sabrina Boyer, Dianna Forwell, Hannah Haviland, Emily Jiang, Cassandra Kumpula, Ricky Liang, Meriem Mahrez, Cheyenne Mapplebeck, Katelyn Martin, Cassandra Merlihan, Martha Merrall, Ragavy Nirmalan, Pushti Shah, Joann Sparkes, Kayla Stumpf, Claire Tian, Julia Ulmer, Amy Wu, Alice Zhao.
Profiles of the artists can be viewed on instagram.
"An interlude is a pause between acts—an intervening period of time. This exhibition is the culmination of four years spent honing our craft, exploring new methods of creation, and discovering who we are as artists. Now is our time to take a brief pause before emerging from the university as budding artists; holding four years-worth of skill, determination, and perseverance.” (excerpted from class statement)
Exhibition Sponsors: The Woolwich Observer, The Jacobs Family Tim Hortons, Starbucks, Zofia Szymczak, Cambridge Frito Lay, Dominic Panganiban
