The annual Michaelis graduate exhibition opened on Wednesday, 6 December. The school's director, Dr Kurt Campbell, began proceedings with a welcome and well wishes for the graduating class. Recently retired Associate Professor Virginia McKenny presented a moving keynote address, with many valuable words of advice for the journey that lies ahead of the class of 2023. Michaelis galleries curator, Jade Nair, expressed thanks to the many individuals who make the exhibition possible and two student representatives, Keagan Larkin and Thato Makatu, spoke on behalf of their class.
