Titled Fresh 19, the students’ collections present an interactive exhibition highlighting concepts like human mortality and impermanence, the female psyche and feelings of shame, the role of heredity and environment in human development and the essence of cosmic consciousness.

These themes are depicted through works that include large-scale photographic prints, photobooks, video projection installations and a return to the past with the pinhole camera.

One PSC graduate, Agata Mayes, has already had her talents recognised with the award of the  2018 Emerging Photographer of the Year followed by a publication in Capture magazine in 2018.  Agata will present her video installation, Origins from the series The Essence that explores the role of cosmic consciousness and the origins of the universe.

Other artists include Sue Brunialti, Angie Bye, Denise Lawry, Neen Magro, Alex Rogers, Zina Sofer and Sally Thomas.

The exhibition will be held at the Yarra Sculpture Gallery, 117 Vere Street, Abbotsford, Victoria until 8 December.

Opening night is Friday 22 November from 6-9pm.
