GALLERY: Art in the Park

Erskine Park High School’s budding artists have pushed the envelope once more with paintings, sculptures and photographs that depict homelessness and genetic selection.

Their annual Art in the Park exhibition’s 19th outing begins tonight, with HSC major works among the selection of more than 700 pieces from students in years 7 to 12.

‘‘We create an environment where students can take a risk with their art making,’’ head arts teacher Gennaro Serra said.

‘‘We want to give them the skills that they need to feel confident enough to create an artwork they feel proud of.’’

Resin sculptures and and graphic prints join more traditional painted canvases in this year’s selection of works, which are a culmination of more than six months of work.

■ Art in the Park opens on Wednesday, August 20 in the school hall, Swallow Drive, Erskine Park, at 6pm. The exhibition is also on Thursday and Friday, 9am - 2.30pm, and Saturday, 9am - noon.
