A look back at the March Mostra 2017

In March the BSR gallery saw the first exhibition of work by our Fine Arts award-holders in 2017. Thanks to the fantastic photography of Roberto Apa, those who were unable to attend March Mostra can now take a look at the artwork exhibited below! You can read more about the practice of each artist by clicking on their name.

The exhibition was made possible thanks to the support of The Bridget Riley Art Foundation, Conseil des Arts et des Lettres Québec, The Incorporated Edwin Austin Abbey Memorial Scholarships, The Linbury Trust and the supporters of the Scholars’ Prize in Architecture.
