Students from Holland College’s visual arts program will be showing off the best of their work during their annual art show at Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown in early May.

The show opens with a public reception on Friday, May 4 from 5-7 p.m. and continues until May 13.

The Confederation Centre of the Arts Gallery is open to the public Wednesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 1-5 p.m. Admission is free.

Photography and digital imaging, graphic design, video game art and animation and fundamental arts students are presenting their work under the theme ‘To Gaze is to Think’.

“The theme invites the viewer to slow down and enjoy the work that the students have created,’’ said April Condon, graphic design instructor. “(It invites the viewer) to take a moment to think about how the work makes them feel. What is the message? In a society where we are bombarded with so many images, it is nice to slow down and think about what the true message of a visual is.’’

She added that it is also an invitation for students to reflect on their work and think about how care they have come during their time at the college.

“The amount of creative growth that happens in a relatively short amount of time is impressive to see and we look forward to watching them continue to grow as they take the next steps in their creative careers.’’
