“This show is a culmination of a four-year bachelor degree or postgraduate diploma and is for the students the point of departure into a promising future,” the Michaelis website states.

“For art-lovers it has become tradition to attend the Michaelis Graduation Show opening to see the newest crop of talented and ambitious young artists – and to snap up some of their work at bargain prices,” it says.
