For several weeks each spring, for the past seven years, current and retired secondary visual art teachers have exhibited their art at Oakville Town Hall (1225 Trafalgar Rd) at the “Front of the Class” art show.
This year’s show, which runs from April 19 until June 16, 2017, will showcase artwork from more than 20 Halton District School Board teachers. There is no cost to attend the exhibit during Town Hall opening hours. More than 40 pieces will be in the show including paintings, sculpture, graphics and other visual arts.
“Front of the Class provides a rare opportunity for teachers to share their artistic abilities, creativity and vision with a wider community,” says one of the show organizers, HDSB teacher Christina Annis.
ArtWorks Oakville will host a private opening reception on May 10, beginning at 6:30 p.m. where people can view the works and chat with the teacher artists. Some of the art is available for purchase. For more information, visit www.frontoftheclass.ca
