The first round of exhibitions for 2014 finishing Sunday 2/3/14 (tomorrow) include the following:
Going Baroque - group painting exhibition.
Works in the exhibition will combine contemporary and traditional techniques, as well as methodologies, cultures and influences and transcribe the Baroque within contemporary visual culture.
Journey (life odyssey) - Kathleen Glover.
Glover’s work examines the variety of journeys we make through life, some mundane and others more exotic, but from every passage we have the opportunity to gather knowledge and experiences which enrich and hopefully, enlighten our lives.
Surroundings - Kathryn Camm and Melanie Smith.
This joint exhibition explores ideas of the artist’s surroundings through two different perspectives and approaches. The two perspectives come together in a shared space to present to the audience an interesting view of Newcastle.
Simulacra - Breony Delforce.
We seek to wrestle a sense of peace from the seemingly chaotic world around us. The reflection and dissection of our personal reality leads to an understanding of the universal truths which surround us.
Coal River - Dylan Smyth.
Coal River is a visual journey following coal exportation through the Hunter Valley and city of Newcastle, with a particular emphasis on the scale and mechanics of this industry.

26 NOVEMBER – 1 DECEMBER
NEWcastle Products is an annual exhibition showcasing the innovative projects of the final-year Industrial Design students from The University of Newcastle.
The Industrial Design program is provided through a unique partnership between the University and TAFE NSW. The students identify and investigate opportunities for the commercialisation of a product, and through rigorous research and development they create, evaluate and present innovative concepts of quality. With multidimensional skills, they are able to manage a project professionally and participate effectively in a diverse range of design projects across many industries.
During the daytime, the exhibition will be also open to the public and arranged school visits for budding designers.
The Opening Night will be held on Tuesday 26th November and will be a celebration of the students’ achievements in completing their four-year program with friends, family and staff encouraged to attend.
This year, NEWcastle Products has also worked together with HunterNet business network to create an Industry Evening on Thursday 28th November. This will enable industry to meet with graduates to build connections for the future and discover further insights into the projects on display. Tickets for this event are available at http://newcastleproducts2013.eventzilla.net.
