CHECK OUR THEIR WINNING ART PIECES

Abbie Giesbrecht is an emerging artist based in St.Albert, Alberta. Currently, she is studying at MacEwan University in the studio arts program. Abbie was encouraged to be creative and learned to paint from her Grandmother from a young age. She works with acrylic paints and is primarily influenced by architecture. However, she also has an interest in environmentalism and has been inspired by this subject in some of her earlier student works. Her paintings often show a variety of mark-making techniques and brush strokes, “I aim to not hide my brushwork. I think it’s valuable to see the application and the mark-making process in my paintings, “

My name is Kim Huynh, and I was born in Edmonton, Canada, in 1998. As a child, I was always intrigued by all art forms, although I held a special interest in manga and video games. I grew up drawing whenever I could, including during classes where I scribbled in my notebooks. I am passionate about depicting the human figure through digital mediums and dabbling with acrylics and gouache.

Hi, I’m Molly! I’m an Edmonton-based artist and designer currently in my third year of MacEwan’s Bachelor of Design program. I am frequently inspired by the people I collaborate with as a student and creator. I love to work with watercolors and recently have found an interest in digital art and illustration.

SAMU’s Artworks Program consists of several arts-related initiatives, including the student art gallery, Gray Gallery, and an artwork rental fundraiser, known as Grayworks. SAMU also purchases student artwork each spring to refresh Grayworks offerings, and to display in the SAMU building.

The Gray Gallery

The gallery is named after the late Dorothy Gray who was a longtime professor at MacEwan University, and devoted countless hours to helping students. The space is located behind the cafeteria in the Heart of the Robbins Health and Learning Centre, Room 9-113A (110 Street, 104 Ave).

The Gray Gallery supports the artistic initiatives of students on campus. It offers an opportunity for students, staff and faculty to plan and organize their own exhibits. Gallery hosts will be eligible for a $200 grant to help fund the creation of their galleries. If you’re looking for a career in the local arts sector, this is a great way to build your resume and get involved in the community.

The Gray Gallery is entirely volunteer run, therefore gallery hours may vary. If you have any questions or are interested in getting involved, please contact norteym@macewan.ca

Grayworks

Every November, SAMU auctions off one-year leases for student-made artwork. This program helps to support our bursary program, SAMU Cares. Check back in November for the auction link.

Student Refugee Program

Each term, $2.50 of your student fees goes towards supporting SAMU’s Student Refugee Program (SRP). Working with World University Service of Canada (WUSC), SRP funds the tuition and housing of a refugee student for four years. With the help of a local committee group made up of students and staff, SAMU ensures all the sponsored student’s needs are met throughout their time at MacEwan.
