In DVSA News

Thursday, May 4 – Sunday, June 4 

Our 2023 Juried Student Art Show features 40 artworks, highlighting the artistry of our students in a range of mediums and styles. Open to all adult students enrolled in a course within the Summer 2022 – Spring 2023 school year, the show is a great opportunity for our artists to submit for a juried show and receive feedback on their work. Six awards were issued by our two judges, Melissa Bennett and Clarence Porter, including Jurors’ Choice 2D and 3D, Second and Third places and Honourable Mentions. Kudos to our winners and all our artists for taking a creative risk and submitting pieces for this year’s judging.

View the show here online or drop by the school from May 4 to June 4 to see this year’s selections in-person in our DVSA Main and 2nd Floor Galleries.
