Next Generation VCE Art and Design Awards 2018

The ‘VCE Next Generation 2018’ 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 from 2017 include Hamish O’Brien, Kiara Dalem, Oscar Thomas, Abby Buckland, Ethan Palonek, Courtney Stedman (whose artwork was used for the catalogue cover), Freya Maude, Matilda McKinnon, Ella Young and Erin O’Beirne .

A special congratulations to Studio Art Photography student Oscar Thomas for winning the Thornton Richards encouragement award. He received $100 for his efforts.

The exhibition runs until Sunday 12 March at the Art Gallery of Ballarat. Entry is free.
