Opening at in April, the National Gallery of Victoria will present the highly anticipated Top Arts: VCE 2009, an exhibition showcasing the artistic talents of young Victorians. Now in its sixteenth year, Top Arts will display over 80 works by 57 students from government, Catholic and independent schools from across Victoria. Students’ ideas are represented through a range of media, including drawing, film, painting, inkjet prints, textiles, and sculpture.

This year’s works have been inspired by a wide range of themes, including contemporary culture, the nature of relationships, life’s challenges and concern for the environment. Students have also been influenced by the works of illustrators, established artists, authors and filmmakers.
