ECU students shine in national visual arts exhibition
Thursday, 21 April 2011
Congratulations to ECU students Bruce Reid and Rohan Sibon who have both been selected to showcase their work at prestigious national graduate art exhibition, Hatched, showing at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) until the beginning of June.
Known as the launching pad for some of Australia’s most successful contemporary artists, Hatched offers a broad array of media and approaches to contemporary art, with this year’s exhibition showcasing the work of 35 artists from 20 of the country’s tertiary level visual art institutions.
Bachelor of Contemporary Arts student Bruce Reid finds art as a way to interact with the world around him and is showcasing his ambitious sculptural construction entitled, Following Clouds by Day - Well Chapel alongside fellow student Rohan, who is completing a Bachelor of Contemporary Arts (Visual Arts).
Senior Lecturer and Visual Arts Studies Coordinator, Dr Nien Schwarz, congratulates both students on being selected by a panel of professional artists and gallery staff to showcase their work at this highly esteemed national exhibition.
“Hatched is a wonderful opportunity for contemporary artists to show their work to a varied audience, and has been the starting point for many successful careers within the contemporary arts community,” said Dr Schwarz.
“On behalf of everyone at ECU I congratulate them on their achievements and encourage the ECU community to support these students by visiting their work.”
The exhibition is currently showing at PICA until Sunday, 5 June. For more information, and to view the full list of selected artists visit the PICA website.
