Students from TAFE Western Creative Industries will present some of their incredible works at a week-long exhibition at the Dubbo Myall Street College from October 31.
Creative Industries Teacher Jude Morrell said the exhibition included works from visual arts, photo imaging, design and fashion students.
“The visual arts works show a combination of specialised technical, creative and conceptual skills with artworks that include drawings, paintings and printmaking - displaying a variety of methods including screen prints, aquatints and etchings,” Ms Morrell said.
“The photo imaging work covers a variety of genres including studio and environmental portraits, night photography and techniques such as ‘painting with light’ and photomontage.
“Fashion students will be displaying a sample of their creations and our design students will be showing their work on screen.”
Advanced Diploma student Alleyne Graham, who will display her printmaking work in public for the first time, said all students were very excited about the upcoming exhibition.
“There has been a real buzz getting ready for the show and this will be the first time I have exhibited printmaking,” she said.
“My usual medium is watercolour painting, which I continue to develop. I’ve had a great year and am looking forward to coming back next year as artist in residence.”
Assistant Curator at the Western Plains Cultural Centre Caroline Edwards will officially open the show at 6pm on Saturday, October 31, at the TAFE Western Dubbo Street College. The exhibition will continue the week after from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
“Many works are available for purchase and all are welcome and encouraged to come and help us celebrate a creative year of artmaking by our terrific students,” Ms Morrell said.
