Next generation artists feel the rage again

Art The UTAS Tasmanian School of Art is once again hosting ArtRage 2010, the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery’s vibrant exhibition of secondary school artwork.

Showcasing the talent of many of Tasmania’s future arts professionals, this exhibition will be exhibited in the creative environment of the UTAS School of Art.

ArtRage 2010 includes artwork from 58 secondary art students state-wide.

The exhibition is diverse in media and subject matter. Digital and traditional black and white photographs, sculpture, painting, drawing and graphic design work is strongly represented.

Head of the UTAS Tasmanian School of Art, Professor Noel Frankham, congratulated the students on a fantastic display of creative work.

 “ArtRage receives extraordinary cooperation from students and teachers, as well as other participants within the industry,” Prof. Frankham said.

“We hope the experience of having their art work exhibited will inspire the students involved in ArtRage to continue to create and hone their artistic skills.”

Each year ArtRage includes an Examiners’ Choice, a student’s work selected by the Assessment Panel in response to a request by secondary art teachers to view a complete body of exemplary artwork.

Ben Lovell from Hellyer Campus is the Examiners’ Choice this year and his Photomedia series The city that never sleeps plus its associated support material will be on display, which will provide a great opportunity to see in detail one artist’s investigation into a specific discipline.

The exhibition can be attributed to the support and cooperation between the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, the Burnie Regional Gallery and UTAS.

Exhibition open for viewing: Saturday 30 July until Sunday 21 August 2011. Open 8.30am – 5.45pm on weekdays and 10am – 4.45pm on weekends.
