Community talent is on show at the Shepparton Art Museum thanks to two summer exhibitions, Friends of SAM and North x North East – VCE Art and Studio Art.January 4, 2013 4:04am
SAM director Kirsten Paisley said the exhibitions were about ‘‘showcasing and celebrating art in the region’’.
‘‘What they really say is that you don’t have to have a career as an artist for art to be an important part of who you are and what you do in life.’’
Ms Paisley said it was a valuable experience for VCE students to show their work.
‘‘Often it’s the first time they’ve exhibited in a gallery. It’s a terrifying thing really, for young people, anyone really to put their work out into a public space and then experiencing strangers looking at their work and commenting on it.’’
She said the Friends of SAM exhibition was a ‘‘celebration of the support that the Friends give to the museum throughout the year’’.
‘‘I think it’s important because it shows that the Friends are actively producing work and are engaged with art materials themselves, not only as patrons but as makers.’’
