Wrap it Up - Fleming College Art Show & Sale
December 15 2012


Fleming College Haliburton is pleased to present Wrap it Up, the end of semester art show and sale hosted by current students in full-time diploma and certificate programs. This one day exhibition will take place from 10am until 3pm on Saturday December 15 at Fleming College's Haliburton campus. Wrap it Up is a wonderful opportunity for developing artists to gain exhibition experience and showcase their many talents. Visitors will be amazed by the vibrant tapestry of the arts found on display and within the college. Many students who attend Haliburton School of The Arts have come from outside of Haliburton County to study at Fleming College and this exhibition provides members of the Haliburton community an opportunity to view new works by new artists. Artists will be available to discuss their works and answer any questions. This exhibition is a student-based initiative featuring a variety of media showcasing the talents of our fall semester students. Some of the media represented include painting, drawing, fibre arts, photography, iron sculpture, and mixed media. Select works will be available to be purchased. Please join us for light refreshments, as well as the chance to explore the unique and inspiring space that is the Haliburton School of The Arts. The event is free of charge and open to all.
