Our Year 11 Visual Arts Exhibition was installed this week at Kogarah Library and Cultural Centre and is now open to the public. Year 11 Visual Arts students created works inspired by their immersive three day residential at Bundanon. They also drew inspiration from their classroom studies of American artist, Georgia O’Keeffe who is best known for her “distinct flowers, dramatic cityscapes, glowing landscapes, and images of bones against the stark desert sky”.

The response to the theme, In a Landscape was varied with students producing vibrant works on canvas, watercolours in rich soil-like hues, studies of skulls and vegetation in pen and ink, and fascinating sculptures of vessels in natural materials.
Yet, despite the variation, there remains a unity across the works. This aspect imbues a sense of professionalism, collaboration and creativity, reflective of the talent of both our students and their teacher, Mrs Louisa Cunningham.
Exhibiting in the public domain offers students a powerful forum for seeing their work in the context of others and within a broader theme. It also invites feedback from those visiting the gallery, which can be both motivating and empowering. We encourage you to take time out and view the exhibition.
