Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School photography students have brought their Words Given to the Unspoken to Rodman Hall.
The art show opened last week, presented in partnership with Peter Vietgen, an associate professor of visual arts at Brock University, and Amy Friend, who teaches fine arts at Brock.
Friend, who is also an artist, had a three-day workshop with the photography students at Holy Cross.
“It was basically a class project,” Grade 12 student Meggan McConnell said of the exhibition.
“It was something we were interested in and (our teacher) encouraged us. She really believed in us,” she said with a smile.
Her piece in the art exhibit is called Living in the Age of Innocence.
Prior to being a part of the photography class, McConnell had never taken any art classes.

Corey Quinn believes there is no shame in silver.
The head coach of the Holy Cross Raiders boys field lacrosse team couldn’t have been more proud of his charges after they came home with a silver from the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) A/AA boys field lacrosse festival in Georgetown.
“They are going to wake up Monday and realize they climbed a huge mountain,” said Quinn, who was assisted on the sidelines by Dave Walker. “We were so proud of the guys. They put in such an effort.”
The medal was the culmination of a lot of hard work from Day 1 of training camp.
