CLICK: SCHOOLS IN FOCUS
24 OCTOBER – 16 NOVEMBER
In late 2013 the gallery launched a new initiative to showcase senior secondary school photomedia projects, with the first being a portrait exhibition by Whitebridge High School Year 11 students. The second exhibition in the CLICK series, from Lake Munmorah High School, saw senior Visual Arts students inspired by ideas and symbolism represented in works studied by contemporary Aboriginal artists, Christian Thompson and Tracey Moffat. All the works on display were created using handheld devices such as iphones and ipods with impressive results. The third exhibition in the series, entitled Light Show, showcased vibrant explorations of light effects by students from Warners Bay High School.
This current and fourth exhibition in the series shows the results of how students from San Clemente High School have developed their sense of identity by exploring how they connect to the world around them and why. All exhibitions are proudly displayed in our education facility to publicly acknowledge the accomplishments of local students and their teachers.
