The SACE Art Show at the Light Square Gallery, Adelaide College of the Arts, will include about 100 art and design works created by 2018 Year 12 Visual Arts students.

In a first for Rostrevor, three gradutates – Lachlan Barr, Zachary Centofanti and Daniel – will feature their works in the art show.
Daniel’s unique work tells the story of the college across four separate painted glass panels.

“I wanted it to reflect the Edmund Rice legacy with him central to it all on the first panel, then the Church and the white house of the college and finally the green background representing future opportunity,” Daniel said.

“The school has done so much for me, so I wanted to give something back to them.”

Daniel credited his Art teacher Luke Salini and many Rostrevor teachers along his education journey for helping bring out his artistic talents and setting him on a positive path.

“I used to get in trouble a bit when I was younger and was a pretty borderline student, but they guided me in the right direction and helped me get to where I am now,” he said. This month he will begin his university studies in Construction Management and hopes to incorporate his passion for design and drawing into a future career.

The SACE Art Show is open to the public from March 19 to April 16 at the Light Square Gallery.
