Sheridan’s Craft and Design program turns 50 this year, and throughout 2017 the faculty is organizing a series of events in celebration of both its proud history and the exciting future of the recently launched 4 year Honours Bachelor degree that will graduate its inaugural class in 2018. A series of alumni exhibitions and an accompanying book project aim to take stock of the long standing and continuing impact of the many phases of this program on the scene of Canadian Craft and Design. Each Studio Head has selected two established alumni to help kick off our 50th year celebration, in turn, these alumni were invited to submit work, but also to select 3 more recent or emerging alumni to submit work to the exhibition.

Art Fundamentals Program Faculty Exhibition 

February 3 - February 17, 2017 

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 16, 1:00 - 3:00 PM


2017_ArtFundiesGallery2


The Art Fundamentals program emphasizes studio work. Students produce art from the first day of class, gaining practical skills while discovering their strengths and preferences. Students also have the opportunity to explore many options for further study and careers in the visual arts. 


The Art Fundamentals Program is recognized as one of, if not, the largest, longest running, one-year, stand-alone, autonomous Foundation Program in North America. It is one that many Canadian post-secondary institutions in the Greater Toronto Area are using as a model to design their own Foundation Programs. One strength and success of the almost 50-year-old Art Fundamentals Program is the various skills, backgrounds and expertise of the outstanding faculty. This exhibition is a presentation of the personal and professional of Art Fundamentals faculty, including drawing, painting, sculpture, and two- and three-dimensional design.

Please join us Thursday, February 16th, from 1-3:30 pm for our reception. Faculty and students will be in attendance.
