It was hardly surprising that Acacia Peterson’s wonderful charcoal drawing should catch the eye of the ARTEXPRESS selection peeps. It’s been whisked off to Sydders this week leaving a bit of a hole in the Grad exhibition.
Never mind, we did have it in the flesh for a week, and there are pl-enty of other goodies left to enjoy…
It’s that time of year – and right on the heels of school assessment comes The Grad Show, featuring selected work from HSC visual arts students across the Bega Valley Shire (Bega High, Eden Marine High, Lumen Christ, Sapphire Coast Anglican College) plus the graduating class from the Illawarra TAFE (Bega Campus.)
And what a glam opening it was – helped by the fact that it coincided with one of the school formals!
The selected exhibition is now a fixture on the BVRG’s annual program and represents a significant milestone in the artistic development of the oncoming generation of regional practitioners.
We can safely say that creativity is alive and well in the Bega Valley, and some of the work is nothing short of astonishing.
Get into the Gallery quick; it’s only a short season (closes on the 3rd December)
