William Mackie's artwork selected for ARTEXPRESS2020

Thursday, 09 Dec 2021

William Mackie's drawing has been selected for inclusion in ARTEXPRESS 2022, an annual series of exhibitions of exemplary artworks created by New South Wales visual arts students for the Higher School Certificate examination.

William's large scale drawing traced his Scottish ancestry and explored his love of the humble lead pencil drawing. The bagpipes feature throughout the work as does his family tartan. Will's use of pencil in rendering fabric, stone and skin is absolutely exquisite.

This is a fantastic way to end a challenging year .... Congratulations and thanks must go to Victoria Phillips who worked endlessly with Will in helping guide him along the way. Big thanks also to Fiona Minto who has provided tremendous support throughout this year for year 12 students in many different ways. 

Another year of outstanding performance by Visual Arts students.
