For more than twenty years, the National Gallery of Victoria has been presenting a popular exhibition which showcases outstanding work by students who have completed Art or Studio Arts studies in the Victorian Certificate of Education. It gives us great pleasure to inform the college community that Year 12 student, Maria Rydzewska, who studied Units 3 and 4 Studio Arts, has been shortlisted for the StArt Up: Top Arts 2018 exhibition.

The National Gallery of Victoria confirmed that they received over two and a half thousand applications, of which only approximately 130 artworks are shortlisted.

As we await the announcement of the final selection, the College would like to acknowledge Maria’s tremendous achievement so far. Maria created a series of artworks exploring the theme of disconnection and conveyed this through the use of drypoint intaglio techniques and the layering of materials to further emphasise the concept.
