Dane wins art prize
Year 7 Brisbane Water Secondary College student Dane Allen has been awarded the Junior Art Prize in the Gosford Regional Gallery's annual exhibition A Central Vision.
The exhibition, which will be on display until Wednesday, March 14, allows local secondary public schools to select the best works from students and have them displayed in a professional exhibition.
Gosford Regional Gallery curator Mr Tim Braham said that this year saw 80 students selected from over 300 entries from 14 local schools.
"We've had a fantastic response from local schools with some terrific works entered.
"It's really great to see students excelling in the visual arts.
"This exhibition provides a professional platform for young people to display their talent and I'm sure visitors to the gallery will be very impressed with the standard of works in the show," said Mr Braham.
Mr Braham said that A Central Vision was just one of the opportunities provided to local school students to exhibit at the gallery.
"We are very committed to providing exhibiting opportunities for local school students.
"Other annual projects, which include Sculpture by the Bay and the Indigenous Mural Project, are always extremely successful in helping develop young aspiring artists."
A Central Vision is organised in partnership with The Department of Education and Communities NSW and was opened by Education for Hunter and Central Coast deputy director Mr Frank Potter.
