2007 Sheridan Graduate Exhibition opens April 26 at the Steam Whistle
OAKVILLE, ON, April 19 /CNW/ - Catch the next generation of Canada's top
young illustrators as they unveil an exhibit that may permanently change the
way you read the newspaper.
The exhibit, entitled HEADlines, is a witty and provocative collection of
illustrations that probe behind today's front-page news. The images target
everything from Paris Hilton's bizarre pet obsession to the healing power of
pomegranates. All the work has been created by the 2007 graduates of
Sheridan's renowned Bachelor of Applied Arts Illustration program. The gala
opening takes place on April 26th at the Steam Whistle Brewery in downtown
Toronto from 7 p.m. to 1 am. The show continues April 27th (5:00 pm -
11:00 pm) and April 28th (11:00 am - 6:00 pm).
Sheridan's illustration program is the only one of its kind in Canada and
has produced some of the world's leading young illustrators. Award winning
graduates have created work for Ride Snowboards, Honda, Coke, Adidas, MTV, and
every major magazine and newspaper in North America. 2002 graduate Graham
Roumieu recently signed a deal with a major Hollywood studio for options on

Autobiography of Bigfoot", which he began as a student project.
