by Aidan Wiess, Office of University Communications intern
Western’s Art 306 class, led by Professor of Art Cara Jaye, have submitted their class work to the Penticton Art Gallery in Vancouver, British Columbia, and joined the international group of artists participating in the gallery’s “You Are Not Alone” COVID-themed exhibition.
“With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting imposition of self-isolation, the Penticton Art Gallery, in partnership with the Syria.art Association, invited artists from across the globe to participate in ‘You Are Not Alone,’” Jaye said. “Like a message in a bottle, we sent out a call to artists working in all media to submit works which would serve as a testament to our resiliency, creativity, and collective humanity in face of these extraordinary times.”
