Three Oaks Senior High School Graduate Art Exhibit
Now on Display at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre
Culture Summerside is excited to once again host the Three Oaks Senior High Graduate Art Exhibit. It has been a June activity for the arts, heritage and culture division of the city for a number of years. The staff feel it is a privilege to display the work of community youth completing their high school years and moving on to the next step in their life journey.
The grad class art students are excited to invite the public to view their annual work. The students exhibiting their work are: Josie MacDonald, Olivia MacKinnon, Landon Teatro, Lauren Stordy, Mya Burnett, Emily Doucette, Jamison England and Lacey Arsenault.
These students have had a broad range of experiences in their studies in art at TOSH for the past three years, including a focus on drawing instruction, all painting mediums, sculpture, printmaking and art history.
The exhibit is open to the public, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4 pm, free of charge. The Lefurgey Cultural Centre is located at 205 Prince Street, Summerside.
We invite everyone to come and view the exhibit, and to support our talented youth artists in Summerside.
Culture Summerside Celebrates National Poetry Month
April is National Poetry Month in Canada. The League of Canadian Poets has invited communities across Canada to celebrate the 23rd National Poetry Month this April 2021 with the theme of resilience. Established in 1966, the League of Canadian Poets is a national non-profit organization dedicated to supporting poets, building poetic communities, supporting inclusive and equitable free expression, and promoting Canadian poets and Poetry. Culture Summerside invited veteran Island poet Wayne Wright to create a poem centred around the theme of resilience.
