The Visual Arts faculty at Homebush BHS was delighted to hear that James Smith and Leon Burfield’s artworks were selected from the Operation Art exhibition, which will then be exhibited at the AGNSW early next year, along with 49 other artworks from the exhibition. Further good news was that James Smith has also won the Secondary Schools ANSTO award at the Operation Art exhibition, which is a fantastic achievement and recognises James talent in Visual Arts. Also the first time anyone from our school has won this prestigious award.

The Operation Art exhibition is held at the Armory Art Gallery at Newington and is run in association with the New South Wales Department of Education’s ‘Arts Unit’ and Westmead Children’s Hospital. This year there were 857 student artworks from both primary and secondary schools across NSW that were entered in the exhibition.

The exhibition opening on the 5th of September again proved to be a great success, with an estimated attendance of 4,000 people over the weekend! The exhibition continues until the 25 October so there is plenty of time to get there if you haven’t already, to see some fantastic artworks.
