Legacy Art Gallery Downtown
From the studios of 19 University of Victoria art education instructors in the Faculty of Education comes a rich and diverse exhibition of images and objects that range through traditional and newer media. Working independently in their studios, these artist/educators collaborate and exchange ideas on a daily basis while working with students, engaging them in creative problem solving, and assisting in the preparation of work for exhibitions.
What they hold in common is a commitment to both the classroom and the studio as sites of research and dissemination. Teaching informs studio practice and studio informs teaching practice in the daily ebb and flow of professional life. This exhibition invites visitors to experience that dynamic interaction.
