Hills Gazette - - GREEN THUMB -

GUILD­FORD Gram­mar School will host its 17th an­nual art ex­hi­bi­tion and sale this week­end.

This year’s fea­ture artists in­clude Olga Ciro­nis, Kathryn Haug and Mi­naxi May.

Lo­cal artist and Old Guild­for­dian Imo­gen Palmer will paint one of her many travel pho­to­graphs at the of­fi­cial open­ing tonight and chat to any­one who wants to know more about the piece or the story be­hind it.

Palmer’s art­work is a mix­ture of ex­pres­sive and in­tri­cate works that ex­press her thoughts and feel­ings of the world and her sub­jects.

She de­con­structs ideas and pro­cesses to push mean­ing and con­text into her draw­ings and paint­ings.

Her vi­sion is to not only pro­duce mean­ing­ful works that ap­peal vis­ually, but also to em­body the soul of the sub­ject through her own eyes.

Many of her works are in­spired by her trav­els and vol­un­teer­ing around the world, and the many dif­fer­ent peo­ple, places, an­i­mals and faces she has en­coun­tered.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open to the pub­lic from 10am to 4pm on Oc­to­ber 7, 8 and 9, and on Oc­to­ber 10, from 9am to 1pm.

The school’s com­mu­nity high tea on Sun­day fea­tures fash­ion pa­rades, with the lat­est looks from Trends Bou­tique and en­ter­tain­ment by Jean-Trent.

Tick­ets are $25 each and avail­able from owww.ggs.wa.­tea.

This im­pres­sive art­work is by Year 12 stu­dent Jasper Sharp.
