Architect Alar Kongats officially opened the new art and design facilities at Centennial College's Centre for Creative Communications in East York yesterday, in conjunction with the 28th Annual Art and Design Students' Exhibition.
Kongats, 2002 Governor-General's Medal winner for Centennial's Student Centre at Progress Campus, conceived and designed the five new spaces, which were purpose-built for painting, drawing, design and three-dimensional art classes. The facility includes gallery-quality display space complete with integrated connections for new media presentations.
This week's exhibition will show outstanding work from Centennial's visual art fundamentals students. The program incorporates fundamental education in traditional art (drawing, design, colour, art history) as well as digital art and design. Graduates typically move on to programs in New Media Design and Digital Animation at Centennial, or programs in fine art and design at other colleges and universities.
The art exhibition will be open daily to the public from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. and continue until noon on Saturday, April 24. Admission is free. Call 416-289-5119.
Design at work
Cambrian College and the Association of Registered Graphic Designers of Ontario (RGD Ontario) is hosting Design at Work 2004, an exhibition of projects by R.G.D. members until April 30. Admission is free.
The exhibition demonstrates the power of graphic design as an effective strategic business tool. The projects, by professional graphic designers, were selected by a six-member jury of business and creative professionals from over 300 submissions and represent communication designs ranging from annual reports and websites to logos and signage.
Concurrently with Design at Work 2004, RGD Ontario student members from Cambrian College's Graphic Design program will present Design at School, a selection of this year's best student design work.
Groups and schools can call 566-8101, ext. 7598, to book a private or guided viewing of the exhibition.
