ARTEXPRESS is an annual collaborative exhibition that aims to highlight exceptional works of art from graduating students of government and non-government high schools in NSW.
For the first time ever, Maitland Regional Art Gallery is proud to host ARTEXPRESS and display 35 of these selected works from the 2012 Higher School Certificate. And especially for our audience it is exciting to know that 18 of the exhibited artworks were created by students from schools in the Hunter-Central Coast Region.
Each ARTEXPRESS exhibition is unique as it reflects the students’ individual explorations of concepts such as culture and personal identity presented in a wide variety of expressive forms. Having ARTEXPRESS at MRAG is a great opportunity for all our local and regional students to see this internationally renowned exhibition.
ARTEXPRESS is a joint venture of the Board of Studies New South Wales and the New South Wales Department of Education and Communities, managed by the Department’s Arts Unit. It is presented in association with the metropolitan and regional galleries. Artworks are selected from a pool of high achieving Bodies of Work submitted for the New South Wales Higher School Certificate Visual Arts examination.
