The annual Year 12 Art Show celebrates the achievements of graduating student artists in Albury. The work in this exhibition is representative of an increasingly high standard of creativity shown by young artists involved.
The students have worked hard to this point, researching and planning in a visual diary and creating their bodies of work. They have also undertaken their higher school certificate Visual Arts exam which includes art criticism and art history short answers and essays.
For the artists involved, the exhibition is a chance to revisit their work outside of the classroom; for some it is the first opportunity to see their work displayed publicly as an object of value rather than as the result of an assessment task. It is also a great opportunity for the artists to get a feeling for what it is like to be an exhibiting artist and see if they would like to pursue an artistic career.
This exhibition provides an opportunity for the community to view the diverse range of artworks produced by local students, and reflect on how each students’ art plays a valuable role in the development of their individual identities.
The 2016 Year 12 Art Show includes work by students from the following secondary schools:
- Albury High School
- James Fallon High School
- Murray High School
- Scots School Albury
- St Pauls College
- Trinity Anglican College
- Xavier High School
This exhibition also applauds the dedication and commitment of our local Visual Arts Teachers. For teachers and parents it is not only a time to celebrate the achievements of each student but a chance to acknowledge their contribution in the immense emotional, practical and financial support given to a Year 12 student in the midst of creating a major artwork for the HSC.
Come and view the artwork and reflect on the important role the students’ art plays in the development of their individual identities. This exhibition also applauds the dedication and commitment of our local visual art teachers.
Cr. Kevin Mack, Mayor AlburyCity, will open the exhibition
