If you live in Sydney and have yet to see the ArtExpress 2012 exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, you have just one week before it’s too late. It is well worth a special trip to the Art Gallery just to see this wonderful exhibition. Trust me on this.

ArtExpress is the annual exhibition of outstanding student artworks developed for the art making component of the Higher School Certificate examination in Visual Arts for 2011. So, for the uninitiated – the artists who make up this exhibition are school students of around 17 years of age, give or take a year.

Every year I am blown away by the artistic talent we have bubbling away within our secondary schools. Have a taster…

Aren’t they incredible? So talented. And to do this on top of studying for their other final year subjects as well, those kids are amazing.

I know – kind of intimidating, really. All that talent!

Absolutely fantastic, especially the first one and the last one, very nice. 😀

It’s so hard to pick a favourite, Mags. They are all fantastic.

I think “Stigmata” is very clever!

wow, I love the “flourish” one. Although they are all great. Sure makes my final A Level art projects look a little lame. I will have to go down and have a look.

It is so worth it! And, you can catch the Archibald at the same time. Bonus! 🙂

Incredible – what a truly fabulous event! How do you find all this awesome stuff? So amazing, really! xo!

Another reason to head down under, Miss Shira! 🙂

Stigmata and Flourish are my faves. What absolutely amazing talent!
