The Space Between – Deakin Graduates Art Exhibition

It is that time of year again when we see the results of all the hard work put in by art students, where ideas are given form and presented to the public.

A week or so ago The Space Between exhibition was held at Deakin’s Costa Hall foyer, featuring the work of the graduating students in the Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts) course. Painting was strongly represented along with installation pieces, monoprints, charcoal drawings, sculpture, video and sound art.

It is great to see Deakin’s relatively new course finding its feet. Courses like this are fundamental to the artistic life of the community. Already I have heard a whisper of an artist-run gallery space and studio starting up soon, initiated by one of the graduating artists – stay tuned for more details about this exciting development.

Here is a selection of photos from the exhibition. Enjoy!

The participating artists were Leonie Allan, Brianna Benson, Jeremy Boyd, Bianca Brant, Matthew Curtis, Shelley Jardine, Rachel Kirby, Robyn Mackay, Jennifer McElwee, Jake McMahon, Frances Munk, Sally Pearson, Felicity Van Kan and Tanna Warren.
