FORMER University of Ballarat art graduates currently have their work on display at the Art Gallery of Ballarat.
22 graduates spanning over 30 years have been invited to share their work with the local community.
Alumination curator Claire Blake said the exhibition was designed to celebrate graduates who still practice art.
"It's important for us to showcase those still in the arts," she said.
"It's hard to continue being an artist after art school
"This exhibition is about celebrating our graduates who have continued with their artistic practices despite the difficulties and constraints of day to day life."
Ms Blake said the selected group of artists have worked in a range of mediums with a variety of works on display in the exhibition.
"There are great differences, you've got drawings, paintings, ceramics, sculptures and photography, she said.
"With so many different mediums, hopefully people will find at least one piece they will enjoy."
Artists exhibiting in Alumination include Kim Anderson, Phil Berry, Amy Deveraux, Peter Georgakis, Tarli Glover, Debbie Hill, Ash Lieb, Kat Pengelly and Kiri Smart.
