showcasing vce arts

I had the great pleasure of officially opening the 2012 VCE Creative Showcase exhibition last week at Burrinja.

Bonnie, student from Monbulk Secondary College, is one of the artists on display, Bonnie has also been selected to exhibit at the VCE Top Arts at the National Gallery.

On exhibition in the Jarmbi Gallery through to 11th March, the VCE Creative Showcase was established to exhibit and celebrate outstanding work from top graduating visual art students across Yarra Ranges.

In it's fifth year, it's an exhibition that never fails to be a challenging and rewarding arts experience. I'm always impressed by the works of our young artists, it's good news for an ongoing creative future in The Dandenongs, a place that's inspired artists for decades (if not centuries!).

This year's VCE Creative Showcase featured 28 student artists across 8 local schools, well up from the 15 students featured in 2011.

The works on display are from students of local schools including Belgrave Heights Christian College, Emerald Secondary College, Mater Christi College, Monbulk College, Mountain District Christian School, Sherbrooke Community School, St Josephs College and Upwey High School.

The exhibition runs from 16 Feb to 11 Mar, in the Jarmbi Gallery (Burrinja).
Hours: Tues - Sun, 10:30am to 4:00pm
Address: At the corner of Glenfern Rd and Matson Dv, Upwey.
