The NCAT Visual Arts students and staff having been busy putting together a fabulous exhibition of NCAT student work as part of Northcote's Northern Exposure Festival.
Full time & part time NCAT Visual Arts students from years 11 and 12 worked along side our NCAT Folio Preparation students in the group show. The theme "Cameo" encouraged students to represent themselves visually in a snapshot of their artistic style.
The exhibition is on at the Northcote Town Hall's Rooftop Gallery, an intimate space in a great location. The gallery has some of the best northern views of Melbournes City skyline. (See photos).
NCAT Visual Arts staff Kylie O'Malley, Nicole Anderson & Sonia Baroudi (Right) guided the 11-12 Visual Arts students, who are currently completing Certificate II & III respectively in Visual Arts & Contemporary Craft. Their students exhibited a broad range of work. Highlights included extraordinary pin hole camera images and steampunk fashion outfits made from cardboard. NCAT Visual Arts facebook page is well worth a like.
NCAT Folio Preparation staff member, Sue Durham (Right) led our Certificate IV in Visual Arts & Contemporary Craft students, who presented two separate projects - A Fergus Binns inspired painting and a small 9x5 triptich. NCAT Folio Preparation's Facebook page has more images.
The professional standard of the work exhibited is a credit to the Northern College of the Arts & Technology visual arts staff, who are responsible for the fabulous reputation the college has in the wider visual arts field. Congratulations!
