The MacLaren celebrates the creative talents of Simcoe County students in Portfolio, an annual juried exhibition of works by graduating Grade 12 students. This year, the MacLaren received artworks from across the region. Fifty artworks have been selected for this exhibition, including one group project with twenty-three artists.
Portfolio is an opportunity to highlight the accomplishments of these aspiring artists, and to draw attention to the strong visual arts programmes in Simcoe County high schools. Participating schools include: Banting Memorial High School (Alliston), Barrie North Collegiate, Bear Creek Secondary School (Barrie), Innisdale Secondary School (Barrie), Nantyr Shores Secondary School (Innisfil) and St. Peter’s Catholic Secondary School (Barrie).
The jurors for Portfolio 2016 are regional artist Tanya Cunnington and Emily McKibbon, Associate Curator/ Collections Manager at the MacLaren Art Centre.
