Student talent goes on show for VCE art expo

Senior Highview and MEC students are currently exhibiting a range of their works as part of the 2019 VCE Art and Design Exhibition at the Central Goldfields Art Gallery. Students Harry Cain, Hannah Riley, Megan Cooper and Caylee Gillett met with Central Goldfields Shire chief administrator Noel Harvey (centre) prior to the launch this week.

A special exhibition is currently underway at the Central Goldfields Art Gallery, with VCE students showcasing some “very strong” work in the gallery’s latest exhibition.

Now in its 15th year, the 2019 VCE Art and Design Exhibition seeks to expose the talent and creativity of both Highview College and Maryborough Education Centre (MEC) senior students.

Year 12 MEC student Caylee Gillett designed and created a 3D cake display which is now on show, and said it combines her passions for cooking and creativity.

“Mum, grandma and myself do a lot of cooking, it’s something that I’ve always enjoyed and I like creating things so I thought it would be fun to base my work on that,” she said.

“I haven’t really done something to this extreme before, but now that I know I can do this, I will probably do more of it in the future.”

For Highview College’s year 12 student Harry Cain, it’s “fantastic” to have his work, The Very Last Supper, on exhibit.

The exhibition officially opens at 5 pm today, Friday, October 18 and runs through to Sunday, October 27. The gallery is open Thursday to Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm.
