Below you’ll find a look at three students from the local area, who have all had their works featured in this year’s exhibition.


Chloe Rebellato
St Philip’s Christian College, Port Stephens

Chloe’s work explores the physical and metaphysical bonds that have existed within the context of a ‘progressive’ society since the Industrial Revolution.


Alex McVey
Warners Bay High School

Alex’s work relates to the transient state between adulthood and childhood. The infinite capacities of the blur in the photographs remove specificity of place and time.


Max Galbraith
Newcastle High School

Max ‘s work is an exploration that combines the ocean, as an ever-changing force, with time, as an abstract concept.
