The Year 12 Art Show celebrated the achievements of graduating art students in the Albury region. In 2017 the exhibition expanded across the border to include Wodonga schools, along with Corowa.
This exhibition provided an important opportunity for the community to connect with the ideas, concerns and complex identities of contemporary young people.
For the students involved, the exhibition was a chance to revisit their work outside the classroom and curriculum environment. For many it would have been the first time that their work is displayed publicly as an object of value, rather than the result of an assessment task.
This exhibition also applauded the dedication and commitment of our local Visual Arts Teachers. For teachers and parents it is not only a time to celebrate the achievements of each student but a chance to acknowledge their contribution in the immense emotional, practical and financial support given to a Year 12 student in the midst of creating a major artwork for the HSC & VCE.
