‘Top Arts: VCE 2008’ @ NGV

27 05 2009

As part of the VCE Season of Excellence, ‘Top Arts: VCE 2008‘ is showing at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Ian Potter Centre, from 25th March to 14th June.

On display are selected works “of young people who have completed Art and Studio Arts studies in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), across Victorian school sectors“. For those not familiar with the Victorian education system, these are high-school graduates.

The works of each of the 61 students is well shown on the NGV site here.

I was hoping for more three-dimensional pieces, but was interested to see the good representation of photographic work. A few students worth mentioning:

  • the large-scale image of Camilla Morgan’s is particularly arresting;
  • the delicate drawing on silk by Ruth O’Leary is thoughtful and beautiful; and
  • the painting by Rania Tabet is vivid and very well done.

Top Arts: VCE 2008‘ is on at the NGV Ian Potter Centre until 14th June.
