Sisters Kayleigh, 5, and Keisha, 3, McEwen were among the last to visit Kwantlen’s Fine Arts student exhibition, Stretch of Road, presented at the Cloverdale campus this week.

Their favourite work was this installation by Debbie Alexander called Imagination, made from paper balloons.

The artist’s statement reads in part: “What started out as a medium for presenting colour in repetitious form transformed into a playful installation, reminiscent of a ball room where children are free to play in a pit full of colourfull balls.”

The annual exhibition featured the best work of the past year by Fine Arts students.

Kwantlen now offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts degree program along with a one-year Fine Arts certificate and two-year Fine Arts diploma.

While the Surrey campus is the centre of Kwantlen’s Polytechnic University’s Fine Arts department, its studio space is quite small.

Cloverdale’s campus is home to a new studio and exhibition space, which also had its grand opening as part of the exhibition.
