Progressions 2010 is an annual showcase of the dedication and talent of the graphic design, interior design, and visual art students at Vancouver Island University. Every year, Progressions features the best in student visual art, with paintings, ceramics, drawings, photography, and printmaking showcased at Nanaimo Art Gallery in the Visual and Applied Arts Building. The best graphic design work features poster designs, ads, and book covers, while interior design students’ elegant and unique floor plans are featured in the Malaspina Theatre and cafeteria on campus.
For the first time in the Art and Design Department’s history, fourth year interior design and graphic design students will be showing their work at the Nanaimo Art Gallery on Commercial Street downtown from April 22 to May 8, 2010. “It is a poignant moment when you see art works on the wall and all the hard work over the year comes into fruition,” remarks Gregory Ball, Chair of the Visual Art Department
