This special exhibition of recent work by FedUni’s undergraduate Visual Arts students from the Arts Academy, Ballarat, and Gippsland Centre for Art and Design (GCAD), Churchill showcases new work by our next hot crop of visual artists and designers. Held annually, this important Arts Academy undergraduate exhibition reflects the breadth and diversity of students’ interests, ideas and areas of enquiry, as well as the in-depth levels of their medium and material investigations within a broad range of disciplines, including drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics and design.
