The 48 students expected to graduate from UCT's Michaelis School of Fine Art this week have exposed their work to public scrutiny at the annual graduation exhibition, which runs from 7 to 17 December this year.

The exhibition, which has become a highly anticipated fixture on the Cape Town arts calendar, features final-year work by students completing their bachelor's degrees and postgraduate diplomas in fine art. This year does not disappoint, with a mix of painting, sculpture, new media, print and photographic works. Most are for sale.

"The show, a culmination of so many years of work and learning, is for us as much a beginning as an ending," says one student, "the beginning of a journey that will extend beyond the borders of a finite degree."

The exhibition takes place at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, Hiddingh Campus, 37 Orange Street, Gardens, open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 11h00 to 16h00.
