Students speak from the art
Personal expressions, environmental concerns and the state of world politics are just some of the themes explored in the annual Trinity Catholic College student art exhibition, entitled ARTiculate, which opens next Tuesday, August 15, at the St Marys Site Hall on Dawson Street.
The exhibition features more than 100 artworks from students from years seven to 11, as well as HSC bodies of work from year 12 students. Theres a whole variety of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, lino prints, etching and much more, all of which provide an interesting insight into these young minds.
Young people often get negative press, but they have many wonderful, positive ideas in response to their world today. Come along and see what they are thinking, feeling and saying, said Trinity art teacher, Deanne Rackham. The joy and celebratory nature of their work is incredible it proves to me they still have hope despite political strife and war. In this day and age there are so many things dividing communities and I believe art brings people together its a way to remind ourselves what we have in common. And the beauty of visual imagery is its so direct it goes beyond words.
Next Tuesdays opening night runs from 6.30-8.30pm and everyone is welcome. ARTiculate will then be open for viewing on Wednesday and Thursday, August 16-17, from 9.30am-8pm each day.
Entry is by gold coin donation. For information phone 6621 8155.
