The RMG and Durham College are pleased to invite you to an exciting showcase of local emerging talent. At this live event, we will introduce you to the latest fine art graduates who completed their thesis projects at Durham College in 2021.

Through a series of micro-artist talks, each emerging artist will present their thesis work and describe the inspiration and processes that have shaped their current practices. They will share what they have learned and may explore where their work is headed next! As a cohort of creative and highly engaged individuals, the artists represent a wide range of interests and practices and we are thrilled to be able to bring their work to you through this virtual program.

More about the Fine Arts Advanced program from Sean McQuay, Professor of Fine Arts at Durham College:

“Like all visionary explorers, the students in Durham College’s Fine Arts Advanced program are involved in a continual process of identifying and studying meaningful subjects that pertain to their own evolving bodies of work. Employing an experimental freedom relevant to their concepts and proposals, our emerging artists first researched then developed strategies unique to their practice, all the while learning to define and focus their personal interests.

COVID-19 presented our gang with a series of challenges, and many of our students were forced to continue their work at home in kitchens and garages, and in bedrooms and basements. With great ingenuity, perseverance, and optimism, our students completed the year with

great success. Our hats and mortar boards are truly off to the remarkable graduating students of the class of 2021; you did it!

I extend a sincere thank you to all faculty and staff (you know who you are!) who helped everyone along the way and of course to The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, our partner in creativity, for organizing and hosting our first “virtual” student talk event.

Cheers to everyone!”
