Seven is an exhibition presenting the exciting creations of the Visual Arts students from North Coast TAFE, Murwillumbah campus.
Robyn Sweaney, education officer at the Tweed River Art Gallery and an accomplished artist, will open the exhibition on Friday 22 November, 5–7pm, at Murwillumbah TAFE campus. The display will feature a hand-picked selection of the works from the diploma-level students in a number of media such as painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture.
Sandra Guy, head teacher of Information Technology and Creative Industries says, that Seven presents a wonderful opportunity for diploma-level students to exhibit their artworks to industry professionals and the local community.
‘For the students studying the Advanced Diploma in Visual Art at Murwillumbah TAFE, their solo exhibitions have presented a pinnacle for their qualification. It is the culmination of all their hard work and an insight into their exciting futures ahead,’ says Sandra.
These exhibitions have included Lauren Packham’s very public installation, INvisible, which highlighted issues of homelessness, and more recently Warrick Coady’s exhibition, Mortality, which was a confronting look at the process of disintegration as part of the human condition.
Still to come at the Tweed River Art Gallery Café, Martin Munz is presenting Landscape Paintings, while Rachel Hegh’s Confluence, which explores notions of personal heritage and identity, opened at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall on Friday 15 November. On Saturday 16 November, Kallalu Art in Tweed Heads showcased the works of Rita Masarin, A Moment in Time, and Feona Hayes, Through my Eyes.
