Every year we are honoured to partner with Notre Dame High School to bring you this unique and refreshing exhibit!

Spearheaded by Notre Dame’s Art Department Head Sandra Slosel, this exhibition is the culminating work of the students for their grade 12 Visual Arts course.

Students were challenged to identify topics and issues that were of personal interest and generate a series of pieces that communicates their personal position on the subject.  Most of the work will be acrylic paintings on canvas dealing with a wide range of topics from personal mental health issues to more global social justice concerns.

Titled “Ab Intra” meaning from within, the name for the exhibit was chosen by the students to reflect the source of inspiration for their work.
