A casual read of any of the University's Seahorse alumni magazines cannot fail to impress on the reader the scope and success of our alumni in their chosen fields. Our creative alumni are no exception and this exhibition at the University Gallery profiles the stellar careers of some of our finest graduates who make a difference to the way we see the world through art and creative practice.

Many of our past students have earned national and international reputations for their wide-ranging, innovative and cross-disciplinary approaches to fine arts, photography, and other creative fields, while maintaining strong links to the University and Newcastle community.

In recognition of the importance of creativity in our cultural landscape, and in celebration of the University's 50th anniversary, the works of 50 alumni will highlight the broad scope of their ongoing investigations and achievements.

The opening launch on Saturday 26th September is a free event and refreshments will be served.


Other special events celebrating the University's 50th anniversary:

Alumni Homecoming over three days, welcoming past graduated back to campus from October 21 – 23 October 2015. Visit the website for details and to register for events.
