Total Eclipse of the Art

Georgian Bay Community School Grades 9-12 End of Year Art Show

May 14 - June 17

Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 5, 2024
5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

For the last 9 moon cycles, Georgian Bay Community School Secondary Students have been waxing and waning light and shadow, playing and experimenting with art material, and ultimately enjoying the creative process.

Themes throughout our show include Identity, Heroes, Love, Dreams, Expression, Truth and Reconciliation, and Indigenous World Views. Some artworks have been created purely for skill development.

We make art to share stories of identity and culture, to express emotions and ideas, and to connect our mind, body and spirit. We focus on process over product; although we all get quite excited when the product is a success.

Why “Total Eclipse of the Art”? When the moon completely covers the sun, the observer stands under the umbral shadow of the moon and the sun’s outer atmosphere can be seen. This is when the brighter stars come out.

Thank you for being here to celebrate these bright stars. We hope you enjoy the show.


Galleries are open for free public viewing at any time during the business hours, however some private functions may result in the Galleries being closed. Please contact Meaford Hall in advance to ensure hours at 877-538-0463.
