Cornwall ON – Call to students and student artists in Glengarry, Stormont, Akwesasne, Cornwall and Dundas .
Jacqueline Milner is in the process of planning an art exhibit; “The Earth Matters Art Exhibit”. This Exhibit will feature the work of Regional artists and student submissions, during the months of April & May 2011. The work requested will
“celebrate the Earth’s majesty, remark on the challenges she faces or propose ways that we can be better friends with our living earth”.
The Earth Matters Art Exhibit has partnered with the Cornwall Public Library to host/display the student submissions during the exhibit. Students in the Cornwall, Dundas, Stormont, Glengarry and Akwesasne Region are invited to participate in this Exhibit.
“As it is the younger generation that will inherit the world we leave behind, it is certain they have a few things to share on this subject and potentially will have the most influence on the hearts and deeds of the attendees who will visit this exhibit”.
This opportunity invites students to share their thoughts and ideas on the above theme using words (any language), drawings and paint on a standard sized 8 1/2” x 11” piece of paper. These papers will not be returned to you so if you wish to keep your work please make a copy of your original work and send us the copy.
We would like to acknowledge the maker of each piece so please insure your first name only and last name initial is noted on the back, with the grade you are in and the school you attend.
