What were once bare walls have now been transformed, featuring the bold and vibrant works of original artists.
 
The works of five student artists are now on display at the Archway Gallery, a brand new exhibition space located on the main floor of the library.

“I was in a coffee shop in town and they had art displayed in the shop,” says Gillian van der Ven, liaison librarian. “We had such a bare area in the library and I thought it would be wonderful to give students the opportunity to display their art work.”

The library asked for submissions.

“It’s been fantastic. There’s been a great response so far,” says van der Ven.

There are 18 pieces on display from five artists. The artists are:

  • Brittany Gillies, from Bengough, Saskatchewan, is in her final year of the bachelor of fine arts program majoring in visual arts with a focus on drawing.
  • Stephanie Hasiak is enrolled in the BFA program, majoring in ceramics.
  • Seila Stoffel is in her second year of the BFA program. She’s returned to the U of R. She studied under internationally-known artist and professor Vic Cincansky in 1988 at the College Avenue Campus.
  • Nic Wilson is from Fredericton, New Brunswick. He is attending the U of R for his MFA in visual arts.
  • Jingyu (David) Zhang is from Guangdong, China. He is studying in the department of visual arts BFA program.

“One of the things I enjoy here is the variety of works,” says van der Ven. “We have expressionist, modern works, pastels. I like the fact that there is a mix of things.”

For this first display, the library teamed up with the Faculty of Media, Art, and Performance. New art will go up each spring, fall and winter semester and all students are encouraged to submit their works.
 
“Students have been ecstatic to be able to display their art somewhere and get exposure,” says van der Ven. “We want to make the space more lively. A space that’s designed by students that is most inviting for students to study."
