The eyes have it

Kent Jones’ third year visual arts class displayed their art work in nooks and crannies all over the Corner Brook campus during finals week. These pieces were preparatory works to ready them for the independent projects they’ll undertake in their final year of the visual arts program. Works ranged from paintings, photographs and sculptures to sound pieces, collages and drawings. This piece is by Mike Hogan.
