Golden Secondary School (GSS) was the site for special exhibition of the unique works of art created by Dacey Chaluck on June 14.

Chaluck is a GSS student who has spent the last year working on the pieces in the show.

“I took an independent study class for art this year. I have been working on different pieces throughout the year to become a better artist,” she said. “It has been going really well. I have learned a lot about different mediums and facial studies.”

Chaluck showed 11 pieces at the show which encompassed many different styles of expression.

“I did not consciously make it a variety of pieces. It just so happened that all the ones I like happen to be different. I like them because they are unique.”

She went on an said she finds inspiration from stories and her thoughts.

“I have a couple of Doctor Who inspired pieces. Then just things from my head or things I see in books. Art is forever. I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil. Why would I stop?”

Even though she feels art is a part of who she is, Chaluck did admit preparing for the show was a great challenge.

“Sometimes you have an art block and it can be hard work to finish a piece you have already started. Most of the time it is too fun to call it school,”  she said. “It was a little weird realizing I was going to have this show at first but I like talking about my inspiration with people and showing them how I see things.”
