About the Exhibition:
The Elora Centre for the Arts presents ‘Beyond Words’ in partnership with the University of Guelph’s School of Fine Arts & Music (SOFAM) department to present a student exhibition that is sure to leave a lasting impression. ‘Beyond Words’ is a curated, by invitation show that taps into the wisdom and the power of artistic expression, and the importance of developing creative ways to help us understand the world we live in.
Art students at SOFAM were challenged to submit pieces for this show that gave voice to something important to them, allowing them to use their art form to communicate their perspective to the world, and to us as a community. The topics explored in this exhibition range from cultural issues, climate change and nature, to memory loss and mental health. Artistic medium includes, oil and acrylic paintings, intaglio prints including photogravure, photography, pencil drawings and mixed media.
The exhibition creates an opportunity for art students to share their perspectives on the world through their various art forms and celebrates the voices of artists and the way their art can go beyond words to challenge and inspire others.
The exhibition runs until March 6, 2022
