Students from the Native Arts and Culture Program at Portage College will have their work put on display over the summer at an exhibition in Edmonton.
The works will be part of Carrying On, held at the Alberta Craft Council Discovery Gallery from June 18th – July 23rd. The exhibition focuses on cultural awareness and reconciliation and features colourful bags, pouches and other containers created by Aboriginal artists from around Alberta.
Four of the nine artists featured have ties to the college. Three are 2016 graduates of the program and one is a former student from 1988 who later became an instructor.
