The 2017 Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition – which will run from February 17 until March 12 at the Drill Hall, Torrens Parade Ground – comprises work by 31 students from the Adelaide College of the Arts (TAFE SA) / Flinders University, and the School of Art, Architecture and Design (University of South Australia).

Academy CEO Jane MacFarlane says the show will demonstrate the high quality of talent emerging from South Australia’s tertiary art institutions, and for the first time will include work by post-graduate students.

“This new model aims to offer further professional development opportunities for these outstanding graduates,” she says.

A VIP Vernissage (preview) will be held on February 15 (bookings essential), with the exhibition to be officially opened the following evening by Lisa Slade, the Art Gallery of SA’s assistant director, artist programs.

Below is a selection of work by exhibiting artists, who are eligible for awards totalling $43,500.
