I went to the Annual Student Exhibition at PAFA a few days ago.  I purposely avoided going during the opening because I wanted to avoid the mobs of people and really take a look at the work.

Unfortunately, I have to say I left feeling pretty unimpressed on the whole.  The shows walls were filled to the brim with work, too crowded really.  And that could have contributed to my feeling on the fact that I didn't see a lot of  walls that showed an artist's deep investigation into their work, it felt a bit like a jumbled mess.  

There was a lot of experimentation going on and 'contemporary looking' things but only a few walls that felt authentically cohesive and as a result kept me engaged. The standouts for me are above:  Wei Wei Weintraub, Greg Biché, Mariel Capanna and Bettina Nelson.
