On Friday the 5th November 36 Bachelor of Visual Art students will open their graduate exhibition at Southern Cross University.

The exhibition will showcase the outstanding talent of the students and will include painting, glass, ceramics, multi-media, printmaking, installation and sculpture. Around 500 people are expected to attend the opening.

Visual Arts Program Leader, Associate Professor Jan Davis, said the exhibition is an opportunity for people in the Northern Rivers community to see, and buy if they want to, an amazing array of art from contemporary to more traditional styles.

“This exhibition has something for everyone’s taste. And it is an opportunity for the community to come along and see the incredible talent and art produced by the students in the visual arts program.

“Some of these students have already had notable success at the national level and there will be others who go on in the future to build careers of national and international significance.

“For anyone thinking about purchasing art, now is the time to buy works from these artists before they become the next Brett Whitely.

“This years exhibition will be one of our best, just the sort of exhibition we’d like to see as part of our 10th anniversary celebrations.

Visual art student Bobbie Lynn said; “It is great after 3 years of hard work to share the best of our art with family, friends and the public.”

“We’ll all be going off in different directions after graduation, but this exhibition gives us a chance to celebrate our achievements with eachother, and the community.”
