Tuesday evening (13 March 2018) celebrated the final exhibition of the visual art students. There was a diversity of works from copper sculptures, installation pieces to works in emerging media.
Each student could be proud of their final body of work which was personal to them, demonstrating an individual conceptual approach to their art making. Themes ranged from the vulnerable, the female form, transformation, pop culture, to humans clashing with nature. There was a whole range of impressive artworks including "The New York Old"- a sculpture of a leopard trapped by humankind.
Members of the community, teachers, staff, and students engaged closely in conversation with the artists. The art students were proud to share the ideas behind their works and answer questions. It was a fantastic evening of culture and social interaction; the corridors were crowded and it was wonderful to see such a fantastic turnout.
Thank you to the parents of the students for providing such a wonderful array of refreshments, to the fantastic saxophone quartet, Peter Curtin, Luca Adams, Marcos Giustiniani, Athan Massouras, led by their saxophone teacher Marcos Rufino-del Val.
Lastly, thank you to the students for their hard work and their open-mindedness throughout this artistic journey. I was extremely proud of Isabella, Chloe, Annabel, Laura, Sophia, Celine, Jacob, Benjamin, Ediz, Giovanni and Frederik; your exhibition work was superb and it was wonderful to see how you were also so encouraging of each other.
Most of the artworks will remain on display until early May; members of the community who missed the exhibition, you are most welcome, at any time, to come and visit the exhibits on the second floor of the South Campus.
