The Red Deer College Visual Art Student's annual exhibition, ADAPTATION, was on display at the MAG from April 1-21, 2021. 

ADAPTATION - Red Deer College Visual Art Student Annual Exhibition

Adaptation consisted of first and second year student work in media representational of what is taught at Red Deer College. The title recalls the unprecedented times we are living in and features work that is made both at the College and in the students’ home studios as this year most classes were forced to adapt and go online. But being able to adapt to the situations and resources at hand is an important part of being an artist. It is how we learn.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 closures, we were unfortunately closed to the public for the duration of the exhibition.

For such a short run, we did manage to get a handful of videos! Join Robin Lambert, Chair of the School of Creative Arts at RDC, and Marnie Blair, RDC Visual Art Instructor, for a look at the exhibition through this series of short virtual tours:
