THE future of arts is in very capable hands if the examples on display in the Shoalhaven City Arts centre are any indication.
The centre is hosting the 30th annual ARTSEXPRESS exhibition, showcasing the best works of art from the 2012 HSC.
Of the 246 students from schools in NSW who completed artworks for last year’s HSC, only 42 were selected to tour the state.
Among the collection are works from Jodi Crowe from St John the Evangelist Catholic High School and Michael McDonald from Ulladulla High School.
The exhibition represents a broad range of subject matter, approaches, styles and media including ceramics, painting, photo media and drawing among others.
Shoalhaven Mayor Joanna Gash encouraged residents to take the opportunity to see the work before it was relocated to the next venue.
“It is very exciting to see the Shoalhaven City Arts Centre hosting the diverse range of works and styles that make up the ARTSEXPRESS exhibition,” she said.
“The ARTEXPRESS exhibition is rare in that it covers so many different styles and expressive forms, allowing the audience to view a high quality range of differing works.”
The exhibition will be at the Shoalhaven City Arts Centre until Wednesday, August 14.
