Wandering is a shared part of the human experience.
Susan Varga, an MFA student at the University of Saskatchewan, explores this notion in her exhibit, The Wanderer, currently on display at the Snelgrove Gallery.
For the past 15 winters, the Visual Arts Student Union has given students a venue to sell their artwork. Silence, an annual silent auction and art exhibit hosted by VASU and held in the Snelgrove gallery, allows students to keep between 50 and 75 per cent of the sales from their artwork depending on whether or not they also volunteer for the function. The remaining percentage goes to VASU.
As a child, Di Decaire’s speech impediment made it difficult for her to communicate. Drawing became the best way she could express herself. She attended speech therapy for 13 years.

As the school year draws to a close and students worry about exams, essays and final projects, graduating Bachelor of Fine Arts students are wrapping up their final art shows. Last week, the Sheaf featured many of this year’s graduating BFA shows that appeared in the Snelgrove Gallery throughout March. This week, the Sheaf features the final two BFA shows of the term: Adam Slusar’s Smoke and Mirrors and Gabriella Sieminska’s Katatonia.
It’s one of the best times of the year for campus art lovers. Every Monday through March and April the Snelgrove Gallery unveils a new mix of graduating BFA shows.
In the spirit of connections — intentional or unexpected — the Sheaf sat down with seven of the graduating artists. They talked about each other’s work, their own and what it’s like to put together your first show.

Each student contributes a piece of art, including painting, photography, sculpture and performance. Many local businesses and individuals have also made donations.
