This evening we are celebrating the creative talents of Simcoe County high school students with two exhibitions : 

Portfolio 2015Portfolio provides an exceptional opportunity to showcase the creative talent of youth in Simcoe County. Each year, this juried exhibition features artworks by approximately 50 graduating Grade 12 students from this region.

The Sarjeant Company Design Project. In workshops led by regional artists, Barrie and area high school students create unique monumental designs on display in the Molson Community Gallery. In addition to this exhibition of their artwork, four designs will be transferred to the drums of Sarjeant concrete trucks as a public art project and travelling exhibition. Presented in partnership with the Sarjeant Company.

Everyone is welcome!


The MacLaren Art Centre is also pleased to present Boundless Possibilities, an exhibition of artwork that explores ideas, images, materials and techniques sourced from popular culture. Led by exhibiting artist Matt Macintosh, participants in
W-Edge, our weekly youth art programme, took part in a series of twelve open-studio workshops. During these after-school gatherings, youth worked closely with Matt learning how to best articulate their ideas.
