VCE art to be showcased in February
Published on 25 January 2021
In February, the VCE Creative Showcase will take-over Burrinja Cultural Centre to showcase the work of 21 students who persevered through the challenges of 2020 and COVID-19 to create incredible artwork across a range of different mediums and subject matter.
VCE Creative Showcase, hosted by Council and Burrinja Cultural Centre, is the largest showcase of emerging artists from across the Yarra Ranges region who have completed VCE Art or Studio Art.
This dynamic exhibition and project is an insight into the artistic minds of our youngest and brightest creatives in the region.
Curated by VCE Alumni, this year’s exhibition will also provide a unique glimpse into the experiences and perspectives of our young people who had to face navigating their final years of high school during the unprecedented challenges of a global pandemic.

“2020 was a challenging year for most so it has been particularly incredible to witness the insight, creativity and talent coming from our community’s emerging artists, who endured the challenges of VCE through COVID-19," Yarra Ranges Mayor, Fiona McAllister said.
"I am proud we can offer these opportunities, provide a platform for the emerging artists of the region and showcase their incredible work.”
Mediums include photography, painting, sculpture, mixed-media and drawing.
The VCE Creative Showcase will open on Saturday, 13 February and run until Sunday 28 February, 2021.
