The MacLaren Art Centre is pleased to present Imaginary World, a group exhibition of mixed-media art produced by campers in our Art Quest Camp from July 14 to 18, 2014.

Led by regional artist Jacqueline Swanek, participants ages 10 to 14 years applied paint and assembled cut papers to create a multi-layered landscape full of diversity, colour and shapes. The result is a vibrantly fantastic extra-terrestrial geography!

Inspired by their detailed preparatory sketches, campers had fun with papier-mâché and paint, fabricating whimsical creatures that inhabit this imaginary world.

The MacLaren Art Centre would like to thank Jacqueline Swanek and the City of Barrie, our co-partner in Art Quest Camps for making this project possible.
