FACE: An Exhibition of Portraits by Hunter and Central Coast K-10 Students.

September 18 2010 — November 14 2010

Joel Pedley, Me, crayon, acrylic, watercolour on paper, Erina Heights Public School Year 2

Supported by the NSW Department of Education and Training. Curated by Lauren van Katwyk, Education Curator. Coordinated by Michele Keith, Telarah Public School and Lauren van Katwyk.

The 54 works in this exhibition have been selected from a pool of 142 submitted works from 28 schools. FACE demonstrates the efforts of talented young artists and their teachers from across the Hunter and Central Coast regions, but it also affords us an insight into the perceptions of children and teens; their expressive capabilities, their understandings of the world and of art, and their interests and personalities. MRAG would like to thank Michele Keith of Telarah Public School for her significant contributions to this project.
