HSC artwork on show at Batemans Bay Visitor Centre

The Batemans Bay Visitor Centre will host an exhibition this month of artwork created by Batemans Bay and Moruya High School students as part of their HSC.

The students spend 12 months developing ideas, choosing materials and techniques, honing their skills and producing art as part of their visual arts course.

They are then required to produce a new and original artwork that reflects their views of the world for the HSC from a range of forms, such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, photomedia, textiles and time-based art.

These will be on show at the Batemans Bay Visitor Centre’s Land of Many Waters Gallery from 15-29 November.

Batemans Bay High School’s Visual Arts Teacher Michele Anuuyahong said the students’ approach to their work varied greatly this year.

“It is always a pleasure to see what concepts the students come up with and the ways they resolve their ideas in a visual form,” she said.

“This year painting has been a popular choice with ceramics, photomedia and textiles also chosen. Exhibiting the artworks in a gallery provides an excellent opportunity for our local high school students to connect with their community and communicate their ideas through visual media.”

Council’s Tourism Marketing and Visitor Services Coordinator Lysanne Cameron encouraged residents and visitors alike to check out the exhibition.

“We’re really pleased to support Batemans Bay and Moruya High Schools,” she said.

“It gives the students an opportunity to showcase their works in a high-traffic gallery and see how a professional exhibition is curated.”

The Land of Many Waters Gallery exhibits the work of up 10 artists at a time throughout the year. Works are for sale and range from paintings and prints to wearables including jewellery and fibre and textile creations. Exhibiting artists will take down their works for two weeks to enable the student exhibition.

The centre also boasts comprehensive visitor information, souvenirs and giftware that includes local produce.

The Batemans Bay Visitor Centre is on the corner of Beach Road and the Princes Highway Batemans Bay. The exhibition can be viewed from 15-29 November during the centre’s opening hours, 9am-5pm, seven days. Media Release
