Energies 22

Sat 10 Sep - Sun 23 Oct

Celebrating the next generation of artists

For more than 30 years, Energies has provided a platform for local senior secondary visual art students to exhibit their work in a professional gallery setting. Energies alumni boasts acclaimed contemporary artists Michael Candy, Abbey McCulloch, Rebecca Ross and Michael Zavros.

Presented in partnership with Gold Coast Visual Arts educators and in consultation with our HOTA Gallery and Visual Arts Education Reference Group artworks are selected from Gold Coast students based on individual merit and skill.

Energies showcases exemplary student work, best practice for teaching, and supports career pathways and further study into the arts.

The next iteration of Energies will take place over nine weeks 10 September – 23 October 2022 and we are so excited to welcome the next crop of emerging artists centre stage in HOTA Gallery.
