Thank you to everyone who attended the opening of the 2023 Art and Design Exhibition last Friday night. View the full image gallery online here.
Hosted by the College Art department, the event attracted a large crowd of families, friends and staff who were proud to celebrate the culmination of the students’ 12 months of work and enjoy the beautiful finished artworks on display.
Spanning three levels of the Mary Morgan Wing, the exhibition presented a wide array of artistic mediums, forms and styles, from traditional painting and drawing to photography, digital art, sculpture and woodwork, giving guests an insight into the students’ limitless imaginations and creative processes.
In an event-first, VET textiles students had the chance to work the runway as they modelled their own sustainable designs. The audience marvelled at the intricate and eye-catching pieces on show, which were created by the students as part of The Certificate II in Visual Arts – Introduction to Creative and Sustainable Design Industries course.
We are incredibly proud of everyone who was involved in coordinating the exhibition, from students to staff, and are already looking forward to our next showcase in 2024.
Congratulations to the following students who have been selected for Visual Art Awards in 2023. The awards recognise students’ outstanding commitment to the visual arts and dedication to growing their creative practice.
