2020 Alumni Art Show

Come view the 2020 Alumni Art Show at the Gallery of the Boroughs in C211!
This diverse collection of work features digital art, photography, fibers, ceramics, glass, illustration, and printmaking. The gallery will be open throughout the school day for students and after school until 2:30 for public viewing. It will be up through the end of February, so hurry in to view the work, and see what Algonquin graduates are doing with art in their lives! Don’t forget to sign the guestbook, too!
This show was coordinated and curated by two students, Natalie MacDonald and Logan Fossey. They worked extremely hard to bring this show together over the last few months. With some last-minute help from our 2nd semester Gallery class students, the show came out beautifully.
Want to know more about how to be part of our gallery team? Would you like to help select the artists we showcase? We meet after school on Thursdays until 2:30 in C201. Or join the class for next school year, sign up for Gallery & Marketing during course selection in March! Hope to see you soon!
