Visual and Creative Arts Diploma Class Exhibition
March 9 to March 24, 2011

When you attend this show, you are along for the ride on a journey that has just begun for these artists. “THIS” provides some insight into the progressive nature of student work, that is at turns playful, pensive and sometimes pretty darned hard to get a handle on, and that’s ok! It is through experiments, concept development and creative risk taking that students develop their artistic voice. By intention, no finished work is shown. This is the third year in a row the Rails End has presented a peek at the inner world of VCAD.

Meet the Artists at a Reception Wednesday March 9 from 4:30 – 6 pm.
