An art exhibition that includes work from Scottsdale High School students will open this week.
The exhibition is the end result of the Women, Art, Business residency at Jansz winery, with artist Anna Van Stralen mentoring students from Scottsdale, Lilydale and Port Dalrymple over a four week period.
The students, Tegan Carins, Georgia Knight and Macenzie Kerrison, also had the opportunity to hear from, and ask advice of, Jansz’s all-female leadership team.
“The residency aimed to encourage young women from regional schools to consider the potential of learning, creating and understanding art within a supportive environment,” a spokesperson from the University of Tasmania, the body that funded the residency, said.
The exhibition opens December 7 at 6pm at the Academy Gallery, University of Tasmania, Inveresk.
It will be opened by Minister for Resources, Sarah Courtney.
