A public reception at 6 p.m. Friday, June 14, will celebrate an exhibition in the Armouries’ SoCA Gallery featuring works by 32 students representing five local high schools: Kennedy Collegiate, Walkerville Collegiate, Sandwich Secondary, Catholic Central, and Essex District.
“Front Lines” is an important collaboration between the School of Creative Arts and Windsor-Essex high schools, says gallery co-ordinator Victor Romao.
“This event provides students with the opportunity to showcase their curated, imaginative works in the new gallery located in the beautifully re-imagined Armouries building,” he says. “It is also a wonderful opportunity for contributors to engage with the university community and public through their media.”
This year marks the return of the event after a two-year hiatus during the school’s move to its downtown space.
The exhibition is free to visit, and is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays through June 14.
