Somerset art show­case

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

SE­NIOR art stu­dents from across Somerset are show­cas­ing their cre­ative tal­ent by dis­play­ing their works at the Somerset Re­gional Art Gallery – The Con­densery in Too­goolawah.

It is the first time all se­nior school art stu­dents from the re­gion’s three high schools have had the op­por­tu­nity to dis­play their work at a pro­fes­sional art gallery in Somerset.

The open­ing night of the ex­hibit, held on Fri­day, Septem­ber 28, was well sup­ported with more than 50 peo­ple at­tend­ing and cel­e­brat­ing their achieve­ments.

The unique ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures a range of pieces and de­signs across var­i­ous medi­ums and show the un­lim­ited imag­i­na­tion of se­nior stu­dents from Too­goolawah, Kil­coy and Lowood State High Schools.

Somerset Re­gional Coun­cil Mayor Graeme Lehmann said it was the first time coun­cil has co-or­di­nated the three schools to dis­play the art­work at coun­cil’s award-winning gallery.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for these stu­dents and the cal­i­bre of art­work on dis­play needs to be com­mended. They have done a fan­tas­tic job,” Cr Lehmann said.

“These stu­dents have a lot of cre­ativ­ity and it’s great that coun­cil is able to work with these three high schools to make this ex­hibit hap­pen.

“I just en­cour­age the com­mu­nity to come out and see the ex­hi­bi­tion and sup­port our school stu­dents.”

The ex­hibit will be show­cased at 29 Fac­tory Road, Too­goolawah un­til Sun­day, Novem­ber 4.

The gallery is open daily from 9am-5pm Mon­day to Fri­day and from 10am-4pm on Satur­day and Sun­day.
