Students talk about their work, ideas and inspiration.

Comprising work selected from applicants across Victoria, the annual Top Arts exhibition encompasses a range of media, including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, digital and mixed media.

This year Top Arts 2022 includes reflections on identity, time, home, social issues and our connection to the natural world. Several overarching themes emerged: identity, the passing of time, connecting with nature, home and sanctuary, and social justice and values – questioning what ‘a good life’ might mean for all of us.
