A student gallery has started the year with an exhibition showcasing artworks from the committee running the space.

Powerhouse Gallery has officially launched Activate, displaying an array of works by several committee members.

Gallery co-director Lisa de Boer said the committee aimed to encourage students to use the space as “it is a platform to learn and utilise new and existing skills”.

The exhibition was her first opportunity to curate a group exhibition, de Boer said.

“I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome of Activate, feeling it displays cohesiveness, synergy, connective energy with organic elements that resonate together as a whole.”

The exhibition closes on April 19.

The Powerhouse Gallery is located above Blue Cafe near the Queen Victoria Museum at Inveresk.
