The Art Gallery of St. Albert (AGSA) launches the 23rd iteration of High Energy, a student—derived exhibition that showcases the talent of local St. Albert high school students. This wildly creative and always unpredictable exhibition demonstrates the exceptional standards of visual art education provided by St. Albert high schools, praising the efforts of both students and educators.
Participating schools work closely with Gallery staff to curate an exhibition that blends curriculum-based artworks with new works created especially for the show. Students collaborate to produce highly creative installations that both apply their training and develop their critical and conceptual approaches to art-making. Students are encouraged to practice their technical skills as well as confidently explore new methods, mediums and techniques. High Energy never fails to gather an energetic selection of works, ranging from photorealistic graphite drawings to mixed media abstractions.
*Please note that International Children’s Festival programming will take place at the gallery during the week of May 29th to June 3rd. While visitors to the gallery are still welcome at this time, space will be limited.
