The Freda Deising School of Northwest Coast Art is holding a student exhibition in the Kitimat Museum and Achieves until March 26th. The exhibit opened on February 11th.

“This is a selection of work from our first and second year students,” said Dean Heron. “We concentrated on drawing and designing and we had a painting component near the end of the semester. And then we got our students to paint crests more or less and personal stories.”

He estimated the class was comprised of 7-8 different nations who study art from Northern British Columbia. The paintings are a mixture of traditional and contemporary. Dean Heron explained they were getting away from the red and black and using other colours. The designs were all from traditional view forms.

“It’s a great opportunity and we’re really thankful that the Kitimat museum has opened up their gallery to have a show for us. I think just being here in a different community and exposing Kitimat to what’s going on at the Freda Deising School.
