Advanced-level Design students will showcase their digital design and commercial graphic art work in an exciting exhibition, Dapper: Sharp ideas designed with class, opening at the University of the Sunshine Coast Gallery at 6pm on Thursday 8 November.
The annual student portfolio exhibition incorporates graphic design, animation, illustration, magazine spreads, web sites, digital prints, e-media and interactive CD-ROMs produced by the students over the past three years.
USC Gallery Curator Dawn Oelrich said Dapper would highlight the imaginative work and broad range of concepts created by USC students who are about to embark on various careers in the design industry.
“This exhibition provides a timely opportunity for industry representatives to view the work being produced by this latest group of talented designers,” Ms Oelrich said.
“We are delighted to welcome guest speaker Tanja Hall, President of the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA) QLD and Director of JOLT Advertising, Brisbane, to this year’s event.
“Our gallery sponsor, the Proost-De Deyne family, supports two prizes for outstanding portfolios, which are awarded at the exhibition opening,” she said.
The exhibition will be on display from 8-24 November at the USC Gallery.
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, and is closed Sundays and public holidays.
The 2012 University of the Sunshine Coast Gallery program is proudly supported by Big Kart Track and the Proost-De Deyne family.
