Sight & Sound at San Clemente

Student art works, including textiles, photography, ceramics and painting, were wonderfully displayed in an exhibition titled “Sight & Sound” at San Clemente High School, Mayfield on 20 November.

Respected artist James Drinkwater opened the exhibition and declared himself “absolutely bowled over by the cacophony of disciplines” on offer. The exhibition space was the library and as James said, “All the right sensibilities are in this room.”

Creative & Performing Arts Co-ordinator, Emma South, had carriage of the event and was delighted with the interest shown by guests. As well as dozens of artworks on display, there were musical performances by students and the food technology classes had prepared sophisticated finger food!

James Drinkwater, who was recently awarded the Brett Whiteley Travelling Scholarship, said, on viewing the artworks, “There’s a marriage between the facilities and the mentorship of the teachers which really seems to galvanise the students to give of their best.”

Principal Tony Kelly thanked all involved in presenting what was truly an artistic feast.
