A wonderful evening was had by all at the Student Art Exhibition on Friday 15 November. Thank you to everyone in the College community who attended the night to admire and celebrate the amazing works of Years 9 – 12 students this year.
The exhibition was a resounding success with lots of interesting discussions about the meaning and value of art, and great opening speeches. A beautiful and inspiring talk was given by Hobart artist, Jo Chew who was extremely impressed by the power and depth of the works on display. Helen Spencer, an artist herself, gave a wonderful opening speech reminding the attendees of the power of art to move people, and its importance in our daily lives. Helen also reminded us of the intellectual and academic rigour of much art by sharing that Jo Chew is a shining example of academic art as she is studying for her PhD in Fine Art at the University of Tasmania.
