ARTEXPRESS is a showcase of Higher School Certificate work representing best practice in visual arts education. The exhibition is a wonderful event that connects communities through the visual arts, and offers us a glimpse into the lives, hopes and concerns of our young people. ARTEXPRESS grew from humble beginnings to a major event in New South Wales. The impact of the exhibition has surpassed its original function as a display of exemplary Visual Arts bodies of work and it remains internationally unique.

ARTEXPRESS is not one, but a series of exhibitions that take place over an 11-month period. The exhibition on show at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery (for the first time) is unique to the Cowra region, including works from both metropolitan and regional centres and from both Government and non-Government schools with fairness in regards to gender balance and expressive form. The exhibition includes everything from ceramics, drawing and graphic design, to painting, photomedia, printmaking, sculpture, textiles and fibre, as well as time-based forms.
