Strathfield Council is excited to announce the Ironbark Gallery’s first exhibition comprising of artworks from local students, which will be open to members of the public from 24 June to 21 August.

ROAR showcases the artistic talents of our local high school students from grades 9 and 10.

All local high schools in the Strathfield region were invited to take part in this exhibition. Unlike most thematic competition-based exhibitions; Strathfield Council’s Gallery Curator liaised with local high school teachers and selected works from each school.

This collaborative process is a way in which professional partnerships are established. Strathfield Council endeavours to strengthen these partnerships with annual exhibitions from local schools. A diverse selection of media and subject matter is on display, a testament and recognition of the talents of local high school visual arts students.

Join guest speaker, Ivy Baddock, Curator of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead as she officially opens the new exhibition at the Ironbark Gallery on Wednesday 23 June.

Students are encouraged and empowered when they witness their work exhibited in a public space such as the Ironbark Gallery. We hope that ROAR enables all of our exhibiting artists to feel proud of their work and to feel valued in the community for their artistic contribution.

The exhibition runs from 24 June through to 21 August at the Ironbark Gallery located within the Strathfield Council Library & Innovation Hub, 65 – 67 Rochester Street, Homebush.
