ARTEXPRESS is an annual exhibition of exemplary artworks created by students for the Higher School Certificate examination in Visual Arts. The works represent a broad range of subject matter, approaches, styles and media including painting, photomedia, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, graphic design, documented forms, textiles and fibre, ceramics, time-based forms and collections of works.
ARTEXPRESS represents the high standards and diversity achieved by Year 12 Visual Arts students in New South Wales schools and works will be on display at the Art Gallery of NSW from 12 February to 19 April 2015.
The school’s Leader of Learning for Visual Arts, Karen King said that selection in the exhibition is a prestigious honour that is testament to the dedication of students over their HSC year.
‘We are very proud of our students’ success and it reflects the efforts of our students and the dedication of their teachers,’ said Karen. ‘Only a small number of works are selected for the exhibition each year from thousands of visual arts students across NSW so it is an honour.’
'The achievements of our students also reflects the commitment and dedication of their teachers, Felicity Wood and Sarah Eyles,' said Karen.
