Diploma of Visual Arts students are exhibiting their work in the Trapezium Gallery, Nepean Arts and Design Centre at WSI.
The ‘Illuminative’ exhibition features drawing, photography and ceramics work by full time and part time students currently enrolled in the Diploma of Visual Arts. The exhibition marks the mid-point of the student's course, and is a stunning record of how much they have achieved.
Dr Leanne Hall, Director of the Penrith Regional Gallery &The Lewers Bequest, will open the exhibition at 12 noon on Thursday the 18 th of June 2015. Light refreshments will be served. Past students, friends and the public are welcome to attend.
There will be an opportunity to purchase student works at the exhibition.
Cath Barcan, Head Teacher of Visual Arts at NADC said the exhibition is a fantastic showcase of how much the students have achieved in such a short time, especially across a range of disciplines. I never cease to be surprised at the creativity and originality of our students.”
Many of the students live in the Blue Mountains area and represent the diversity of the community. Liz Smith from Lawson is taking a gap year from her career in community development work to pursue her love of art. She says “it’s never too late to go after your dreams and achieve your lifelong ambitions”.
This is great chance for the public to visit the exhibition and view or purchase the work of emerging local artists.
