vce creative showcase

It was wonderful to be able to launch the VCE Creative Showcase at Burrinja this week.

Here I am with the student artists from the region. I was impressed by the range of works on show, the talent these young artists display augers well for the future of arts.

The showcase, in its fourth year, features art from 46 students across 17 schools in the Shire of Yarra Ranges.
Every year the exhibition has grown to the point that this time round the exhibition is taking place in three venues across the Shire. Burrinja in Upwey, the Mooroolbark Centre in Mooroolbark and the Upper Yarra Arts Centre in Warburton.

The event is a colloboration between the Shire and the Bendigo Bank and its Community Bank Enterprise and features emerging artists from the Yarra Ranges VCE year 2010.

There's some wonderful work, in a variety of mediums, highlighting the depth and breadth of artistic talent of young people in the Shire. It's great to be able to support our young artists, it's a wonderful exhibtion, well worth a visit.

The VCE Creative Showcase at Burrinja features artists from Mater Christi College, Mountain District Christian School, St Josephs College, Upwey High School, Belgrave Heights Christian School and Emerald College.

VCE Creative Showcase is on:
Burrinja - 4th March to 27th March
Mooroolbark Community Centre - 3rd March to 17th March
Upper Yarra Arts Centre - 5th March to 30th March
