Students Open a Whole New World

Digital Arts and New Media Program Hosts Year End Show Starting Friday


Cutting edge design, art, illustration and ideas will be on display in Nelson’s downtown starting Friday when the Selkirk College Digital Arts & New Media Program presents its year end student show.

Students in the Tenth Street Campus-based program are getting set to unveil the best they have to offer in a new downtown venue. The show—which has traditionally taken place at Selkirk’s Mary Hall—opens with an eye-popping evening on Friday at the Shanti Yoga Studio (237 Baker Street) and will stay up until the middle of the month.

Digital Arts Year End Show

“There is a little bit of everything… there is print, illustrations, lots of video work, 3D models, photography and animation,” says second year student Chelsea White.

Both first and second year students will have their finest work on display in the downtown studio. In a program that prepares students for a career in the rapidly changing new media industry, there will be a rich mixture of unique offerings.

“Our class is pretty varied with styles and interests,” says second year student Bryan Webb. “You have the gamers, programmers, artists, the students filming extreme skiing... it’s quite a mix.”

All first and second year students will be at the launch Friday night. The evening will include interactive displays and showings of the video demo reel that will run throughout the night. The art will continue to be shown at Shanti Yoga until April 16. The Friday show is free and gets going at 8 p.m.
