“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.
