This exhibition is investing in New Zealand's future artists and the future of art itself. The exhibition is resplendent with forty submissions from local high schools. Hamilton Boys High, Hamilton Girls High, Rototuna High and Sacred Hearts College.

These compositions are ostensibly entered in a competition between the schools and the artists themselves. The forty pieces on display employ all media in the playbook. A close inspection of the exhibits and you will easily distinguish the sheer youth that announces itself on every page. Vibrancy, boldness, fearlessness, brashness and many other adjectives besides, easily come to mind.

There are a number of compositional narratives that inter alia include structures, wildlife and landscapes. The vast majority of these pieces contain either direct or indirect references to portraiture. Exploration of self or subjects that may represent personal interest, is a standard entry point for most artists. Many of these compositions are innovative, challenging, powerful and in some cases decidedly fantastical.
