The MacLaren celebrates the creative talents of Simcoe County students in Portfolio, an annual exhibition of works by graduating Grade 12 students. This year, the MacLaren received artworks from across the region. Fifty-two artworks have been selected for this exhibition.
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 Central Collegiate, Barrie North Collegiate, Bear Creek Secondary School (Barrie), Bradford District High School, Innisdale Secondary School (Barrie), Midland Secondary School, Nantyr Shores Secondary School (Innisfil) and St. Peter’s Catholic High School (Barrie).
The jurors for Portfolio 2014 are regional artist Luci Dilkus and Emily McKibbon, Assistant Curator of Photography/Collections Manager at the MacLaren Art Centre.
The exhibition is generously sponsored by PowerStream.
