Living nowhere near Calgary, I was unable to attend the opening of the Old School show at the Uppercase Gallery at the weekend.
"The “Old School” theme celebrates the aesthetics of twentieth century education through an art exhibition and companion book, as well as curated objects. It is inspired by vintage flash cards, old desks, biology class, science fairs, crayons, card catalogs, textbooks, class photos, teachers, yearbooks, lunchboxes, gym class, maps, lockers, report cards, film strips, recess, spelling, chalk… and the list goes on!"

Owner Janine Vangool has done a brilliant job converting the space into an old timey school classroom and with over 80 artists taking part it looks like a cool show
Here's my old school contribution to the show, a mixture of hand stamping, letraset and gocco printing.
