Ferry Park Youth Pop Art exhibition

The exhibition ‘Pop Art’ currently on show at Ferry Park Gallery during October consists of some of the work produced over a 13 week period by 20 year 10 students from McAuley Catholic College in Grafton.

The students whose ages range between 14-16 years old studied Pop Art intensely and developed a range of products including each student creating an exhibition catalogue featuring two well known Pop Artists and their works.

The artworks in the exhibition include the mediums of; hand painted silk screen prints, paintings, drawings and collages.

The works reference the popular culture of today. Celebrities and inspiring people as well as traditional Pop Art comic book imagery. There are also works that deal with issues that are of importance for young people such as; COVID 19, climate change, and pollution.

This is a colourful and bold exhibition that displays the talent of a dedicated and ambitious group of young adult artists.
