Visual Arts students to put their talent on show

By Louise Errington

Ian Hance will be one of the three graduating Bachelor of Creative Arts and Industries (Visual Arts) students exhibiting their work in CDU's Nan Giese Gallery

Three final year Bachelor of Creative Arts and Industries (Visual Arts) students will exhibit their work at Charles Darwin University's Nan Giese Gallery this month.

Humpty Doo-based artist Eileen Lim will display a series of embroidered self-portraits that she has spent most of the semester sewing. Eileen said she would like to work as a curator when she graduated, and would apply to be part of the team that coordinated the art component of the 2013 Venice Biennale.

Matilda Coulson will exhibit a series of large-scale landscape paintings in acrylic paint. Drawing on her experience growing up in remote areas of Arnhem Land, Matilda said she would like to manage a community art centre, focusing on organising exhibitions around the country, as well as continue her studio practice after graduating.

Originally from Melbourne, visual arts student Ian Hance said he wanted to continue his studio practice despite his extensive experience of nearly 25 years of painting in the Northern Territory.

"You are never too old to learn new stuff!" he said.

Entitled "Membranes: Permeable & Im-" the exhibition will open in the Nan Giese Gallery, Building 10, Orange Precinct, CDU Casuarina campus on 13 October 2012.

Doors open at 6pm. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Dress code is "Australian Gothic".
