A thought-provoking and colourful computer-based design exhibition of large format prints on paper and canvas will open at the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Gallery on Thursday 7 June at 6pm.
The exhibition, called Collective Perspectives, will feature works by more than 30 Design students at USC who have explored the theme of “the changing aspects of technology”.
The exhibition will be officially opened by USC graduate and well-known industry design specialist, Neisha Phillips, the Director of Creative Emporium.
USC Lecturer in Digital Design Dr Debra Livingston said this annual exhibition demonstrated the students’ innovation and commitment to creativity.
“Our students are encouraged to experiment with photography, painting and drawing skills combined with computer software to produce a dynamic body of art work that has a digital illustration focus,” she said.
“This year, students have explored themes like fantasy, human form, metropolis, culture, mechanics, technology and the natural world.”
Dr Livingston said USC’s Bachelor of Computer-Based Design prepared students for a variety of careers, including advertising, graphic design, multimedia design, packaging, publishing, visual communication and web design.
She said exhibitions by Design students at the USC Gallery were always popular, especially among those considering careers in design.
“The exhibition is an opportunity for the University to show the broader community what our students are doing and what is at the forefront of graphic design in Queensland,” she said.
Collective Perspectives will be on display at the USC Gallery until Saturday 7 July.
The Gallery is located at the University campus on Sippy Downs Drive, Sippy Downs. It is open FREE to the public from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday but is closed Sundays and public holidays.
The 2012 University of the Sunshine Coast Gallery exhibition program is supported by The Proost De Deyne Family, owners of Big Kart Track Sunshine Coast.
