The Faculty of Medicine Art Show is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the theme (Im)possibilities. The annual event opens with a gala on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at 7:00 pm in the Brodie Centre Atrium, 727 McDermot Avenue. Doors will open at 6:30 pm. The artwork will be on public display in the Brodie Atrium until Friday, April 13, 2012.
“Medicine has a long history of transforming impossibilities to possibilities: from gamma knife surgical techniques to saving the lives of severely premature newborns, and everything in between,” says Ashley Pauls, a medical student and planning committee member for the 2012 event. “By exploring the theme of ‘(Im)possibilities,’ artists can showcase how impossibilities and possibilities are present in technology, attitudes, experiences, and multiple other aspects of everyday life.”
She adds: “We are expecting a wide interpretation of ‘(Im)possibilities’ from students and faculty members in all health-related programs and departments at the Bannatyne Campus. We are hoping for submissions that not only explore this theme as it relates to medicine, but also as a reflection and expression of experiences and opportunities in many other areas of life.”
Past submissions have included visual artwork including writings, paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, and the Art Show has recently expanded to also include musical performances.
