COLLABORATIVE, the Graduating Third Year show for Fine Art students, will be presented at Watt Space Feb 1 through 19, 2012. This exhibition will feature works from 25 artists who have recently completed their Bachelor of Fine art at the University of Newcastle. COLLABORATIVE is comprised of a diverse range of mediums, from drawing, painting, sculpture to photography and ceramic work. This exhibition focuses on a range of styles and materials and brings together the ideas and methods these students have been working towards over the past 3-4 years. We would like to invite you along to help us celebrate the opening of this exhibition …
