A coming-out party for a new group of local talent

The opening reception for the Graduation Exhibition at the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre was exuberant. This coming-out party for a new group of talented and locally trained Hong Kong artists was an opportunity to see innovative art created by local talent.

The graduates of the 2018-2019 Art Specialist Course of the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre had participated in the centre’s painting and printmaking programmes for nine months. The evening’s exhibition was purpose planned to celebrate them and showcase the artworks they created during their programme.

The Art Specialist Course Graduation Exhibition was to be an opportunity to see innovative art created by local talent. 

The works were well presented and excellently displayed in the space provided by the centre. Several halls provided an excellent venue for the display of the student work.

The students came from many different backgrounds, experience and interests and pursued art study after having graduated from other fields of study, such as education and psychology. They are a mixed group of young as well as mature individuals. Many currently work in industries that have an affinity for the arts, such as design, illustration, performing arts and art education. The part-time Art Specialist Course provides these emerging and budding creatives a place and space to explore and express their evolution as artists.
