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.

*McMaster Museum of Art has hosted the Studio Art Graduation exhibition for more than 30 years, but had to close from March 19 – August 23, 2019 for Environmental Systems Upgrades full details. We are pleased that an alternate location has been found for 2019, and look forward to future SUMMA presentations.
The Boat Project/everythingwillbefine
Artist Garden | 2018 – 2020
Canadian artist Ernest Daetwyler will build a site-specific work in the Museum’s Artist Garden this summer. He will transform pieces of driftwood into a boat form, embedded with a steelcut text message, creating an environment for both active engagement and reflection. The surreal and poetic installation is intended to symbolize a time of change, challenges, and the existential fluctuations that life can present.
