Some of our Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts students have yet another exhibition of their work on show, this time at Eramboo Artist Environment at Terrey Hills. Sandra Carter, Sophie Temmhoff, Lauren Grabara, Jon Brew, Martin Horan, ... Gloria Obbens, Raelene Wright, Ray Atkins, Karl Hellman, Barbara Hellman, Wai Cheung Lam, and Beverley Kirby are showing as part of the 'On Islands' festival. The students have collaborated with multimedia artist Peta Kahn and Penrith City Council to develop a video piece in response to the urban island heat effect. The resulting work is being screened at the festival along with many other collaborative works by local and international artists. You can read an excerpt from the website below, or follow the link for more info. Congratulations to all the students involved, and their tireless professional practice teacher Jo Newton.
