An exhibition worth seeing
A rare opportunity for Orange senior school students is unfolding at Orange Regional Gallery as some of the best bodies of work from last year’s Higher School Certificate (HSC) are unpacked.
ARTEXPRESS 2018 is a series of exhibitions featuring outstanding student artworks for the art making component of the HSC Visual Arts course, and one of those exhibitions is in Orange from August 25 to September 23.
Orange Mayor Reg Kidd said the exhibition was a must-see for all students currently completing or thinking about studying Visual Arts for the HSC.
“These artworks are some of the best in the state,” Cr Kidd said. “It’s fantastic our students don’t have to travel to metropolitan areas to see the high calibre needed for top marks, or to get inspiration for their own HSC works.”
Cr Kidd said it is incredibly fortunate to have this opportunity right here in our own backyard.
“While the exhibition has educational advantages for our current crop of HSC students, it’s also an exhibition most people will find interesting and impressive,” he said.
The exhibition includes 39 works from government and non-government school students from both regional and metropolitan schools throughout the state.
This exhibition has been curated by gallery staff and features works by local students, including Bailey Armstrong of Oberon High School’s piece Family Portrait Studies and Kinross Wolaroi School’s Tharni-Jo Parkinson’s Face Off sculpture.
ARTEXPRESS is a joint initiative of the NSW Department of Education and the NSW Education Standards Authority with generous support from S&S and the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation.
