Budding Tasmanian artistry on display in ArtRage 2019

 Media release – Thursday 19 December 2019

The City of Launceston's Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery is thrilled to present the latest instalment of ArtRage.

ArtRage is an annual touring QVMAG exhibition showcasing work by Tasmanian students studying pre-tertiary visual arts and is an impressive and inspiring snapshot of budding artistry.

Artists have used many mediums and processes from analogue photography and traditional printmaking techniques to sculpture, video animation and 3D printing technology.

The result is an array of beautiful, challenging and mature work that reflects the last important years of secondary education. More than 100 individual works from 99 students from 25 schools and colleges around the state are featured in ArtRage 2019.

Students have been marked on their works as part of their Tasmanian Certificate of Education. Each year, a panel of ArtRage Examiners award a prize for the most outstanding piece of work.

The 2019 Examiner's Choice Award has been won by Hellyer College Grade 11 student Maeve Grieve whose body of painting works depict northwest coast artists and personalities in their home/studio environment.

Congratulations to Maeve and all the other talented artists involved.

ArtRage is on display at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery at Royal Park from 14 December until April 2020. The exhibition then travels to Hobart where it will be on show at the Salamanca Arts Centre from 2 May to 17 May and at The Burnie Regional Arts Gallery from 7 August until 17 September.
