Next Gen 2018 showcases the work of students from government, Catholic and Independent schools, mainly from the Ballarat and Grampians region who have just completed VCE studies in Art, Studio Arts, Design and Technology, Visual Communication and Design and Media.
The Art Gallery of Ballarat has been exhibiting some of the best work produced by students from across the western Victorian region for twenty years. Next Gen 2018 continues to be an important part of the Gallery’s exhibition program and both provides industry training to its participants, acts as an inspiring introduction to VCE art for current students, and gives gallery visitors insights into the world of young people today. The exhibit runs from 10 Feb to 12 March 2018.
