LA Trobe University Mildura Bachelor of Creative Arts students have launched their final exhibition as undergraduate students, with the public being urged to help celebrate the achievement.
The students’ final exhibition has been three months in the making, and will be on show at La Trobe’s 29 Deakin Avenue campus until November 24. Works will be displayed at the campus’ new gallery named ‘29 Downstairs’.
“I’ve enjoyed seeing this group of incredible students develop into the artists and designer they are today,” La Trobe University Creative Arts co-ordinator and lecturer, Dr Kylie Banyard, said.
“It is my hope that their artistic sensibilities and personal confidence has flourished to a point that they now feel compelled to keep making and thinking, and that their creative processes become an integral part of everyday life.”
Amy Schulz, Carolyne Rickard, Giulianna Suppa and Cairo Loy are the students featured in this year’s annual exhibition.
The Graduate Exhibition, a student-led project, has seen the students working over the last three months to organise every component of the event, including arranging team meetings, organising funds, liaising with industry professionals, budgeting, creating schedules, organising catering and other needs for the night, all while planning their final exhibition pieces.
The exhibition will be open from 10am to 4pm, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and from 10am to 2pm until November 24.
