A private viewing for family and friends, was held on Tuesday evening with an address by guest speaker Melanie Meyler, the local actress and drama facilitator.

The artworks explore various ideas of gesture and movement with the students having created and collected objects and images which, when presented together, form a rich tapestry of connections and shared inspiration.
