For twenty-five years, High Energy has been delighting visitors and inspiring students. Featuring an exciting blend of artworks from each of the local St. Albert High School art programs, curriculum-based artworks are featured alongside new works created especially for the show. Students collaborate, producing highly creative installations and pieces that apply their training to develop their critical and conceptual approaches to artmaking.

In 2020, for the collaborative ‘Challenge Project’, students were tasked to “make the invisible visible”. Participants were urged to interpret this concept in their own way and use materials they felt best suited their unique vision. The ‘challenge’ of the task was to construct an art piece that would suspend from the high ceiling, or in front of the large windows of the main exhibition gallery. These floating sculptures could interpret the concept literally, enlarging something small, normally not visible to the human eye, or highlighting hidden social, political or environmental issues (or anything in between).

Don’t miss the Elsa Zahar Memorial Prize competition that juries all individually created works, awarding a prize for the winner and kudos for all runners up!
