Moving Forward : The GPRC Independent Studies Exhibition


April 15, 2021 – May 31, 2021

Welcome to ENCORE! Here you will find a detailed exhibition walkthrough video, as well as photo documentation of the Grande Prairie Regional College Students immaculate exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie.

‘The Grande Prairie Regional College Fine Arts Department special projects class allows students to realize their dreams and ambitions of making artwork while providing structure and guidance from an instructor. More importantly, is the community that is created. The creative community bolsters us on the days when we aren’t feeling confident or motivated and helps move you forward in your work. You can see what your peers are creating and swap ideas, techniques, inspirations and aspirations.

I am always very proud and excited to see the variety and depth of the work these artists create.’

Tina Martel

Exhibition Walk Through

GPRC Independent : Open Studio

This year 3 artists from the Independent Studies group were able to be involved in the Independent Studies :Open Studio which is set up on the second floor of the Gallery from February 24, 2021 until March 24, 2021. These local artists are; Carol Bromley Meers, Katherine Moe and Wenoa Backer-Kisner. This area gives the students the opportunity to create works in the same space their exhibition will be on display in. As we were hopeful to be open to the public by the time their Open Studio was going on, this would have allowed the community to walk by and see how each artist’s art making process worked and chatted to the artist’s in their studios. As the gallery is still closed to the public, we are creating ‘process videos’, these videos will show each artist’s techniques and give an idea on how they produce their artworks.
