GAS is pleased to present this student show of recent art works.
The notion of “student” is an interesting one; it qualifies a time in one’s life.
I would like to suggest that the choice to pursue the creative arts in any serious way, is to surrender the notion of student as a state of mind and status for a mere compartment of time and instead as a lifetime achievement.
That being said, even us students, from time to time, need to test the waters and put our representations of the world out there. For some here, it is their first time. A brave act indeed. Whatever the outcome, whatever form it takes, may it not be their last.
As a long time student, it is exhilarating to say the least, to be surrounded by the thoughtful honesty and courageous statements of those just beginning. Perhaps because it is so easy to abandon or misplace, the tentativeness of those wonderful qualities, unhindered by self doubt and hesitation, makes this work that much more precious: something to savour and enjoy.
