FROM Friday last week, Shepparton Art Museum began exhibiting works highlighting the achievements of students who participated in VCE Art and Studio Arts in secondary schools from across the Goulburn Valley region this year.
The exhibit showcases students’ skill and creativity in approaches to art-making as well as confidence and sensitivity with regards to subject matter and communicating ideas.
Students from Cobram Secondary College, Goulburn Valley Grammar School, McGuire College, Mooroopna Secondary College, Notre Dame College, Numurkah Secondary College, Shepparton High School and Wanganui Park Secondary College will exhibit their works, which are an array of themes that centre around changing identities, popular culture and consumption, representations of gender and landscape foregrounding current social and environmental concerns and varied approaches to art making.
SAM Visual Arts Educator, Rhonda Chrisanthou said, “Look In…Look OUT! attracted applications from 45 students from eight Goulburn Valley region schools.
“Accompanying Look In … Look OUT!, SAM’s downstairs galleries will also host the Friends of SAM Inc; Best of Friends, as well as a solo exhibition spotlighting the practice of local Photographer, Serana Hunt; Dookie Behind Doors.
