The ANU School of Art 2016 Graduating Exhibition catalogue recounts this year’s impressive exhibition of the work of students completing coursework degrees at the
ANU School of Art. The exhibited work is the culmination of their art practice, and study in art history and art theory. The studio disciplines - Ceramics, Furniture, Glass, Gold
and Silversmithing, Painting, Photography and Media Arts, Printmedia and Drawing, Sculpture, Textiles - together with the school’s Art History and Art Theory programs offer deep and broad learning opportunities. Domestic and international field trips, environment studies, internships at major arts and cultural institutions, international student exchanges
and artist residencies in schools contribute to a rich student experience. Our lively visitors’ program includes international and interstate artists and scholars amidst a dynamic exhibition program within the school’s gallery spaces.
Our thanks to academic staff and those staff supporting them - Technical Officers, and the school’s administrative team. Staff and students appreciate the support and guidance of the school’s Undergraduate Convenor, Honours Convenors, Postgraduate Coursework Convenors and Craft and Design Convenor. The School of Art Gallery staff produce the exhibition and catalogue with grace and is assisted by a team of Gallery Technical Officers.
We extend our gratitude to our committed patrons in the Emerging Artists Support Scheme (EASS). EASS continues to give our graduates assistance and sponsorship at a time
when support can be crucial. The ANU Foundation for the Visual Arts funds an entry-level scholarship for one student and assists the school to continue to invite visiting artists.
The Foundation has also funded administrative assistance for managing the growing EASS portfolio. We appreciate the guidance of EASS coordinator Dr Waratah Lahy and her
assistant Dr Anna Madeleine.
The ANU School of Art staff congratulate our students on their achievements, and invite them to remain an active part of the ANU through our national and international Alumni
networks following graduation. On behalf of all School of Art staff, I wish the 2016 graduates every success in their future contributions to culture and society.
