Since entering the McMaster Studio Art program in 2015, our class has developed and grown both as individuals and as a group. As our time here at McMaster comes to an end, we have the pleasure of presenting our work to the public in a final exhibition. This show is titled Counterpoint, which means, “to combine elements”. With the elements of our practices merging and influencing one another,Counterpoint is a commemoration of experiences and artistic endeavours.
