ARTEXPRESS

14 July - 2 September 2017

 

ARTEXPRESS is a joint initiative of the NSW Department of Education and the NSW Education Standards Authority with the goulburn.art REGIONAL GALLERY

ARTEXPRESS 2017 brings to Goulburn the next generation of artist superstars.  The show brings together over 30 of the very best of the HSC Visual Arts candidates from last year working across a broad variety of artforms including painting, ceramics, photography and textiles.

The works in this year's show indicate not only the extraordinary technical skill and ability but a maturity well beyond what is expected of a 17 year old in the delicacy of the handling of challenging and sometimes confronting concepts.  The young artists not only present us with some colossal social, political and environmental issues but offer a generous and courageous insight into their own experiences.  The exceptional standard of the work in ARTEXPRESS is attributable to the high quality of teaching within the visual arts in High Schools across the state.

Goulburn's ARTEXPRESS exhibition has been carefully curated by Gallery staff to include young artists from the region and to reflect the tastes of our various audiences.  The works have been chosen to reflect the statistics from the candidature across NSW representing students from most regions in the state from both Government and Private schools.  If ARTEXPRESS is indicative of the burgeoning visual arts sector in NSW, the future for the arts looks bright!
