SOLE Alternative School’s art students are hosting an exhibition of their best work at the end of the month.
From May 26 to June 2, Fresh Paint Studio will host visual art, photography, graphic design, sculpture and jewelry created by students in a wide range of styles. The work takes inspiration from all directions – street art, youth culture, and movements throughout the history of art.
A project using mannequins highlights the views of several students on body image standards. Digital imaging techniques and photo manipulation highlight photography with themes of free speech, urban decay and popular culture.
Some of the work in the show has already received positive feedback at the school board’s citywide show, the tdsbCREATES 2015-2016 festival of student art, Open Hearts and Open Minds.
An opening night gala featuring food and a DJ will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, May 26. Fresh Paint Studio is at 1849 Danforth Ave.
Here’s a sneak preview of some of the work that will be on display at the studio:
