From Portrait to Abstract


George Brown Continuing Education Gallery F presents an exhibition of works by:

Stefan Galvanek’s students, who have completed Winter-Spring

courses in:

Painting with Acrylics; Portraiture in Oil; Life Painting in Oils; Sculpting Basics.

Welcome to the 2010 Winter-Spring term student exhibition at Gallery F, which this year showcases the works of twenty-five George Brown Fine Arts students.

Ranging in experience from the beginner level to the advanced level, the exhibitors here explore the genres of portraiture and abstract art. Their studies and their work have incorporated all the principles or aft, including proportion, composition, rhythm, colour, and perspective. In portraiture, vital technical skills are acquired and applied as the painter seeks to achieve the living likeness and expression of the sitter. In the field of abstract art, students absorb the history of the genre though lectures and slides, thus learning to ‘think outside the box; and create their own nonrepresentational works of art.

The exhibition also includes works from George Brown’s new sculpting program, in which students have enthusiastic

ally tackled the challenges of sculpting in relief, creating busts, and experimenting with free abstract forms in clay, while also learning techniques for making molds and casts.

My sincere congratulations to students, who worked so hard in achieving these great outcomes.

Enjoy the show!
