Top Arts 2024 - Mercedes Lucarelli

Congratulations to Mercedes Lucarelli from Class of 2023, on her submission for Top Arts being selected for exhibition at the Ian Potter Centre @ Federation Square. Top Arts is annual exhibition that provides a platform for the next generation of artists across Victoria to showcase talent, passion and creative spirit.

"I'm very grateful for this opportunity to showcase my work from last year! Wasn't expecting at all to be included in the exhibition so I'd definitely encourage any VCE Art Students to submit their work and see where it goes! There are so many brilliant artists who were also students like you this time last year, and the exhibition is a great place to see some brilliant creative inspiration for free!" – Mercedes.

Mercedes’ work ‘cityloopz’, 2023 is currently on display in Top Arts 2024 at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia from 14 March to 14 July. (Photo: Tim Carrafa).
