ISIS Dis­trict State High School art stu­dents Brooke Old­field, Tay­lor Wright, Laura Scholss and Jessica Harper have had their art­work cho­sen to be ex­hib­ited at the up­com­ing Cre­ative Gen­er­a­tion Com­pe­ti­tion/Ex­hi­bi­tion at the Her­vey Bay Re­gional Art Gallery from Septem­ber 19–Novem­ber 2.

This re­gional ex­hi­bi­tion proudly showcases the work of se­nior visual art stu­dents in their com­mu­nity.

The works re­flect the di­ver­sity and the strength of schools’ visual art pro­grams and il­lus­trate the chal­lenges met by stu­dents in the de­vel­op­ment and res­o­lu­tion of their art­works.

The Cre­ative Gen­er­a­tion Ex­cel­lence Awards in Visual Art recog­nise and pro­mote ex­cel­lence in se­nior visual art ed­u­ca­tion and stu­dent achieve­ment in visual art through­out Queens­land’s state and non-state schools.

This pro­gram has been run­ning since 1990 and has helped raise com­mu­nity aware­ness of the de­gree of so­phis­ti­ca­tion in con­cepts, di­ver­sity of tech­ni­cal com­pe­tence, and the high stan­dard of visual art ed­u­ca­tion in Queens­land sec­ondary schools.

The awards in­clude the me­dia of video, film and elec­tronic imag­ing as well as ceram­ics, cos­tume and stage de­sign, draw­ing, en­vi­ron­men­tal de­sign, fi­bre arts, graphic de­sign, in­stal­la­tion, paint­ing, per­for­mance art, pho­tog­ra­phy, print­mak­ing, prod­uct de­sign and sculp­ture.

The awards are an ini­tia­tive that has led to wide­spread recog­ni­tion of the ex­cel­lent work se­nior art stu­dents are pro­duc­ing.

Do you have a pas­sion for art? Popular Mary­bor­ough artist Hay­ley Groves is keep­ing her­self very busy this com­ing month.

She is open­ing two exhibitions at the Mary­bor­ough Art Gallery in Kent Street. Myth­i­cal, Mag­i­cal & Mys­te­ri­ous is a col­lec­tion of art­works by tal­ented young artists that have been par­tic­i­pat­ing in art classes run by Hay­ley.

Hay­ley is also join­ing up again with Dar­ling Downs artists Megan Darr, Cindy Giles and Cor­rina McLaugh­lin in an ex­hi­bi­tion called Eclec­tic, which, as the ti­tle sug­gests, of­fers a di­verse range of styles and themes.

Both exhibitions are on show from Septem­ber 1.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Alice McLaugh­lin for win­ning the Open Land­scape and Re­flec­tions of Mt Perry awards in the re­cent Mt Perry An­nual Art Ex­hi­bi­tion. For those who don’t know Alice, she is the pres­i­dent of the Childers Arts Coun­cil and a mem­ber of the Childers Visual Arts Group.
