Prizes awarded at Connect 14 art exhibition

Connect 14, the fourth biennial alumni art exhibition was officially opened on Monday 1 December at the new VU at MetroWest Hub in the centre of Footscray.

The Connect 14 exhibition features the inspiring and creative works of Victoria University’s emerging and established Visual Arts Alumni, current and former staff and students. The opening night was well attended and many artworks were sold.

Two acquisitive prizes were awarded to works by Alumni Tony Senese and Ros Beer. Tony’s work, ‘Eyes on Olga’ was inspired by a trip to the Olgas (Kata Tjuta) in 1989 organised by the Visual Arts Department of Footscray TAFE (A VU predecessor) where Tony was studying at the time.
