U of O Art Grads Shine
Peter Simpson

Surfacing, an exhibition of work by fresh-minted graduates of the fine arts program at the University of Ottawa, is new work by new artists in a new space, the recently opened gallery Studio Sixty Six in the Glebe.

There’s no telling yet which of the young artists will survive in the art world, as early signs of greatness can fade away just as easily as an early lack of spark can later burn brightly.
