Next Gen 2013 is about excellence and innovation in contemporary art and design practice, as seen in recent work byyoung artists in the Ballarat and Grampians region.

Now in its 18th year the exhibition continues to be an important part of the Gallery's exhibition program and attracts a broad audience of both school students and the general public. It showcases the work of students who have just completed Year 12 VCE studies in Art, Studio Arts, Design and Technology, Visual Communication and Design and Media. Drawn from Government, Catholic and Independent schools mainly from the Ballarat and Grampians region, the work of 75 artists is represented this year, from over 300 applicants.   

For the artists represented it is an excellent introduction to the arts industry through exhibiting in a high profile public gallery and for students beginning VCE, it can be an inspiring and informative introduction to their art Visual Arts studies. The general public have the opportunity to gain insight into the world of young people today by exploring their recently produced art and design works.
