Expressions 45: Rework/Revisit
18 April-17 May, 2020


Woven Together is an artwork comprised of many woven textile circles arranged in a vertical diamond pattern on the Gallery wallWaterloo Region Public, Catholic and Independent Schools are invited to submit original student artworks for Expressions 45, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery's annual exhibition of student artwork from across Waterloo Region.

Students are asked to respond to the theme Rework/Revisit, inspired by the collaborative artwork Woven Together by Grade 1-6 students from One Forest Montessori School. We encourage students to think about repetition, cause and effect, and the infinite possibilities of cycles, whether found in the classroom, their family, or their neighbourhoods, and respond in a creative manner to their findings. Schools are encouraged to submit 3-6 artworks.

Schools and teachers are advised to familiarize themselves with the Submission Requirements and Key Dates below.
