TCS student artwork to be focus of local exhibition

As winter releases her cold, firm grip on the landscape, the river flows freely. Thoughts of inevitable change are upon us; like it or not, all things change, and we change with them. You Never Step in the Same River Twice is an exhibition featuring the work of some of Trinity College School’s media art students, curated by Ms. Sally McKay-LePage. The artwork presents a youthful perception of how change is constant and inevitable. Central to this ephemeral narrative is a realization of time, space and movement constructed and told through a mixed media lens.

Presented in conjunction with Critical Mass and celebrating Youth Week, this juried exhibition showcases new talent in media arts and installation works of selected students from our Grade 11 Media Arts (ASM3M) course. You Never Step in the Same River Twice opens Saturday, April 13th at the Little Station gallery in Port Hope. A panel discussion with the student artists wraps up the show on May 2nd.

Critical Mass: A Centre for Contemporary Art is a local not-for-profit arts organization, led by a volunteer group of curators, artists and art supporters dedicated to bringing contemporary art experiences to Port Hope. “Critical Mass is delighted to have the TCS media arts students’ juried exhibition as our first installation of the 2019 season in the Little Station, curated by their instructor and artist, Sally McKay-LePage,” says Critical Mass director Debbie Beattie. “We still have much work to do to fully transform the station into a space to showcase contemporary art, but we are excited to see how the students envision their work within this space. We look forward to their exploration of our curatorial theme – ephemera in art.”

This exciting initiative will provide the opportunity for our Grade 11 media students to experience first-hand the process of a working artist, from creation of works of art to the selection, gallery set-up, exhibition and discussion of their works. We invite all members of the TCS and Port Hope communities to attend this special exhibition. The Little Station gallery is located at 15 Elias Street, Lent Lane, Port Hope.
