January 25 – March 1, 2013
Opening Reception Friday, January 25th from 8 – 10pm
Running with the theme of RESET, University of Alberta Art and Design Student Groups, VASA (Visual Art) and the SDA (Design) come together to join forces on January 25th, 2013.
These student groups join together in celebration of future artists and designers in Edmonton. The collaboration between art and design presents a stark contrast between the two disciplines. There are however distinct elements that make us draw connections between the two.
See what pulls them together and what drives them apart on Friday, January 25th, 2013 for the opening reception of RESET.
MAIN GALLERY | FINE ART EXHIBIT
VASA is the Visual Arts Student Association of the University of Alberta. This collection of students function as a bridge between the fine art student life, and the life of a practicing artist. The main purpose of this group is to plan, coordinate and fundraise for the Bachelor of Fine Arts Grad Show in April. This is a huge undertaking that comes down to the dedication of the students.
This year, one of their main goals is to reach beyond the UofA to connect with other organizations, institutions and the general public. uofa-vasa.tumblr.com
FRONT ROOM GALLERY | PRINT & POSTER SHOW
The Student Design Association is a collaborative effort that helps to promote and encourage student designers within the community. The SDA strives to link talent within the University of Alberta’s design program to larger causes and exhibitions, creating relationships and opportunities that go beyond the regular curriculum. They have shown work internationally, locally and worked with TEDx Edmonton to create stage designs, collaborated with local design initiatives, and hosted film screenings and public talks.
