Artistic Dreams Become a Reality

Exhibition 1

For a group of Photographic Design & Media and Visual Arts students from Caroline Chisholm College, Glenmore Park, the opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional gallery became a reality in Term 4.

‘The Ideal Home’ is a joint exhibition between the Penrith Regional Gallery, Home of the Lewers Bequest, and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences. It explores the changing nature and experience of ‘home’ throughout the past century in Australia.

The Year 9 students, along with students from St Dominic’s College, Penrith, worked with artist, Khaled Sabsabi, to produce ‘Home’, a digitally manipulated photographic work that explores the eclectic views of domestic streets in and around Penrith.

A selection of Years 9, 10 and 11 Visual Arts students also had the privilege of attending workshops by artist and designer, Victoria Garcia, as part of an extension project. Inspired by their learnings the students produced ‘Memory Tents’, an artwork that is now exhibited alongside Victoria Garcia’s own ‘Earthling Tent’.

Creative Arts Leader of Learning, Karen King, said the school is very proud of their students and the quality of their work.

‘We are grateful for the trust that the gallery has in us, by allowing us to exhibit alongside significant contemporary artists, Richard Goodwin, Catherine O’Donnell, and the objects from the collection from the Museum of Applied Arts and Science (the Powerhouse Museum),’ Mrs King said.

The exhibition can be viewed at the Penrith Regional Gallery until 24 March 2019, and at the Powerhouse Museum until 29 May 2019.
