VISUAL Communication students from Mater Christi College recently entered a Victoria-wide student art competition, Our Sunset, My World.
This Exhibition is a very special one. The theme, Our Sunset, My World, is to inspire students to appreciate and value the rich diversity of our world and their place in it through their art. The Exhibition will have the dual purpose of highlighting students’ art while raising awareness and funds for disadvantaged children in Cambodia, providing them with much needed opportunities for education and a future. All student artwork will be sold through a SILENT AUCTION process.
Students from over 100 schools entered artworks for the competition run by Have a Heart Cambodia. Find out more about Have a Heart Cambodia on their facebook page.
All six Mater Christi students that entered were selected to have their work exhibited and sold at the exhibition. This event will be held in the Atrium and the Edge Galleries at Federation Square on Saturday, 23 July. The exhibition will form part of the Cambodian Arts and Cultural Festival.
Year 10 student, Madison Winkler, said the Cambodian situation inspired her work. “My design juxtaposes the developed society that we live in, with that of Cambodian children, by illustrating key factors of everyday living in the two scenarios, through a series of playing cards,” she said.
Another successful entrant, Molly O’Bryan said, “Through my artwork, I wanted to depict the independence of Cambodian children and highlight their vulnerability”.
