The Trent Visual Arts Network (TVAN) is having an art show in the Hobbs Library of Sadleir House for the whole month of February.

The show, “Bringing Artistic Minds Together,” is displaying work in a variety of media including photography, painting, and ink. Some of the art is available for purchase. Artists include Katelyn Wardlaw, Michael Barrett, and Victoria Singh.

The art show gives an opportunity to build community at Trent based on visual art, as the artists are all Trent Students.

Wardlaw has created a series of photography called “All Good Things are Wild and Free”, Barrett has a collection of animal/wildlife drawings in a “psychedelic fashion” and Singh has displayed spiritual abstract paintings.

Ryan Lamoureux, vice-president of TVAN and a Trent Student, has displayed photographs of places found on Symons campus, and one picture of the train tracks in downtown Peterborough.

The gallery is located in the Hobbs Library, Room 101 of Sadleir House, 751 George Street North.

The art show is available for the public to see during gallery hours which are 9am to 9pm from Monday to Thursday, 9am to 6pm on Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturday. The gallery may also be open by chance on Sunday.

However, the show room may be closed to the public during these times if it is booked for meetings ahead of time. Feel free to call ahead to ensure that the room will be open (705-742-3686).

TVAN also has other upcoming events including “a group of 10 photographers will be exhibiting for the first time during the Peterborough SPARK photo festival in April” says Lamoureux.
