Two Monaro High School students basked in the limelight of a public exhibition of their artworks at the Monaro Regional Library on Monday.
The exhibition of abstract paintings and photographs is called Project KJ. Monaro High head teacher Alenka Macnab said one of the artists, Kyle Flanagan had generated a substantial body of work demonstrating a talent and true passion for art.
Jimmie Constable designed the flyers and invitations for the exhibition and studied photography in year 12.
"Jimmie's work also illustrates a talent and passion for photography," Mrs Nacnab said.
"He has a keen eye for visual representation and a good feel for composition and colour."
Kyle Flanagan's colourful abstract paintings are inspired by Jeffrey Nero Hardy, an American artist from North Carolina and Jimmie Constable's photographs are inspired by nature.
The exhibition opened on Monday at 12 noon in the Vin Good room.
