Galleries in the Gardens to showcase HSC students from Bulahdelah

Last year’s Achievement Award Winner Jazz Bishell, First Prize Winner Hannah Baillie-Angeles and Jakob Sutherland-Lister.

STUDENTS from Bulahdelah Central School’s HSC class will have their artworks showcased by the Galleries in the Gardens on Marine Drive, Tea Gardens, starting Saturday 18 November.

Anyone who has endured the NSW examination system knows the pressures that constitute HSC-level studies, and it is only fitting that their works of passion also be made available for enjoyment by more people, beyond the students, their teachers, and assessors.

“We get to see their work as of 18 November, after it has been assessed for their HSC,” Anne Stuart, from the Galleries, told NOTA.

“It is a great opportunity to foster art with the young people in the area, encourage them, I think it’s marvellous they get to that stage and produce work, they are really fantastic kids, and clever!” the ever-effervescent Ms Stuart was pleased to announce.

“Each piece of work has a sign, and the students can sell them if they want to – last year we had a few actually sell, which is an amazing boost for the kids, too.

“The Galleries in the Gardens has hosted HSC students’ work for the last three years.

“The 2022 students, however, were only Year 10 at the time, in lieu of a twelfth-grade class that year, meaning that some can come back this year, too.”

HSC Visual Arts students undergo a rigorous curriculum wherein their understanding of techniques and appreciation of the delivery of meaning by established and historical artists is put to the test, quite literally.

Exam questions include detailed descriptions of artmaking practices, analysis of architecture from around the world, and even focus on the interaction of audience and imagery to evoke potentially powerful emotional responses.

The Galleries in the Gardens Students’ event will begin at 4pm on 18 November, and the students’ art will remain on exhibition for ten days until 28 November.
