February 1 - February 29
Public Reception: Saturday, February 1, 1pm-4pm

The Chapel Gallery is proud to host The Art in Me, an exhibition by the art students of Bracebridge and Muskoka Lakes Secondary School and St. Dominic Catholic Secondary School. Sometimes it is easy to forget what it was like to be a teenager. This exhibition not only showcases the local emerging talent, of which there is lots, but also allows viewers much insight into the thinking, attitude and struggles of today’s young citizens.  

Each student has submitted a piece of work to represent themselves. Lauren Conway, a grade 12 student at St. Dominic says she is excited “for the experience this gives to students who are going to study art in the future.” Student works include universal themes such as nature, death, abstraction, mental health, the environment and more. The students have been learning about using acrylic and watercolor paints as well as creating sculptures to convey their messages. “This is a great opportunity for students to experience a real gallery setting, and affords them the learning experience of pricing their work and displaying it,” says Heidi Jeske, an art teacher at Bracebridge Muskoka Lakes Secondary School. “I really appreciate this opportunity offered to us by Muskoka Arts & Crafts. It is such a valuable learning experience for the students. They have worked hard to create work that is meaningful and engaging.”

The Art in Me opens with a public reception on Saturday, February 1 from 1pm until 4pm. There will be music and light refreshments. “This is a great chance to meet the artists and hear about their processes,” expresses St. Dominic teacher, Shanandoah Kidd. “It is important to hear from the voices of young people. This show is a great opportunity for students to share their vision and express their ideas about our world. It is important for young people to be heard.” 

The Art in Me continues at the Chapel Gallery until February 29. The Chapel Gallery is located at 15 King Street in Bracebridge. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm until 5pm with admission by donation.
