Two emerging artists will showcase their take on the world at a new exhibition in Craigieburn.
The Best in Show exhibition features works by Amicus Atman and Emiliano Fernandez.
The up-and-coming artists were selected for the exhibition after taking part in Emerge in the North’s Meeting Point exhibition in Broadmeadows in August.
The annual Meeting Point exhibition provides independent artists with the opportunity to have their work curated and presented to the wider community.
Hume mayor Carly Moore said the work of Atman and Fernandez were chosen for the Best in Show exhibition by a panel of judges. Atman’s work is informed by myth, diversity and psychedelia and explores the purpose of being.
Fernandez’s work depicts reality and imagined imagery drawn from the subconscious, and asks people to find new ways to understand the fragile natural environment.
“Best in Show is an opportunity for both artists to exhibit substantial bodies of work exploring key themes from different cultural backgrounds,” Cr Moore said.
“These artists employ deeply poetic and symbolic imagery to interpret the world around them.
“Hume’s gallery spaces provide opportunities for the community to experience artistic expression in a range of mediums and I encourage the community to support two emerging artists.”
Best in Show is at the Gee Lee-Wik Doleen Gallery at the Hume Global Learning Centre, Craigieburn until February 2.
