Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

From the studios of 23 University of Victoria art education instructors in the Faculty of Education comes a rich and diverse exhibition of images and objects in traditional and new media. These works reflect studio lives that serve as foundation for the collaboration and exchange of ideas between these artist/educators in their daily work with students engaged in creative problem solving, studio-based visual research and art exhibitions of their own. The classroom and the studio are interconnected sites of research for this creative community where teaching informs studio practice and studio informs teaching practice. This exhibition invites visitors to experience those dynamic interactions.

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

From the studios of 19 University of Victoria art education instructors in the Faculty of Education comes a rich and diverse exhibition of images and objects that range through traditional and newer media. Working independently in their studios, these artist/educators collaborate and exchange ideas on a daily basis while working with students, engaging them in creative problem solving, and assisting in the preparation of work for exhibitions.

What they hold in common is a commitment to both the classroom and the studio as sites of research and dissemination. Teaching informs studio practice and studio informs teaching practice in the daily ebb and flow of professional life. This exhibition invites visitors to experience that dynamic interaction.
