Next Generation VCE Art and Design Awards 2017
The ‘VCE Next Generation 2017’ art and design awards exhibition opened to a packed audience last Friday at the Ballarat Fine Art Gallery. This exhibition showcases the work of students who last year completed their Year 12 VCE studies in Art, Studio Arts, Design and Technology, Visual Communication and Design and Media. The students are from Government, Catholic and Independent schools mainly from the Ballarat and Grampians region.
Congratulations to the numerous Damascus College Visual Arts students whose work was selected for this professionally curated exhibition. Our talented participants from the class of 2016 included Cait Canty, Matthew Corden, Kiera Gittins, Brooke Hutchinson, Molly Hutchinson, Rachel McMahon, Sinead O’Riley, Leah Potter, Joseph Short and Dannae Stewart.
Damascus was recognised twice in the awards announced as part of the opening. Visual Communication Design student Molly Hutchinson was the winner in the best digital media category, and Art student Joseph Short received high commendation for his ink on paper artwork. Both received a cheque for $150.
The exhibition runs until Sunday 19 March at the Art Gallery of Ballarat. Entry is free.
