 The spark of VCE graduates’ creativity is on stunning display at Bunjil Place Studio.
The Emergent 2017: VCE Graduate Showcase exhibition shows off a selection of woodwork, textiles, paintings, film and photography from 20 Casey Year 12 students.
Casey mayor Geoff Ablett was proud that students had such a professional setting to show their “exceptional” works for the first time.
The show was a “platform … to celebrate the talent that exists amongst our young community”.
“It was identified that there was a need for an exhibition to showcase and recognise the amazing work of our year 12 students.
“I’m sure these students have a bright future ahead if they choose to pursue a career in the creative industries.”
The artists are Aimee Aumann, Clive Brace, Ana Culanic, Paige Cullin, Heather Daniel, Victoria Harter, Melinda Jobb, Brandon Jong, Bill Le Brocq, Emma Owen, Jedaiah Meerwald, Jade Morris, Bryce Peatling, Moesha Pina, Patricia Summers, Alan Truong, Lisa Vullings, Amanda Westmorland, Molly Wildes and Beini Zhong.
Casey students Mikayla van der Velden and Betty Gu curated the exhibition.
The works were selected by a panel of professional curators, the council’s Youth Services workers and local students.
Emergent 2017 is at Bunjil Place Studio on Tuesday-Sunday 10am-5pm until 18 March.
