Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

CHURCH­LANDS Se­nior High School will be host­ing a com­mu­nity art ex­hi­bi­tion from May 2729.

The ex­hi­bi­tion, run by the P&C as­so­ci­a­tion, will in­volve stu­dents and lo­cal artists dis­play­ing and sell­ing their art­work, in­clud­ing paint­ings, photography, ce­ram­ics, tex- tiles, jew­ellery and 3D works.

For­mer stu­dent Kay Gib­son and par­ent Pene­lope Odessa are the spe­cial guests and will dis­play their lat­est projects at the ex­hi­bi­tion.

Award-win­ning artist Gib­son’s art­works were in­spired by nat­u­ral set­tings like her home in Mar­garet River.

Odessa’s art fo­cuses on sim­plic­ity, and her paint­ings are of­ten are of her child- hood and fairy­tales.

Church­lands prin­ci­pal Neil Hunt said the art ex­hi­bi­tion had been running for more than 10 years and its aim was to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether.

Mr Hunt said 20 per cent of the funds earned would go to the P&C.

The free-en­try event starts on Fri­day, May 27 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm and con­tin­ues un­til Sun­day from 10am to 4pm in the Visual Arts Build­ing.

Morn­ing and af­ter­noon tea will be sold.

For­mer Church­lands Se­nior High stu­dent Kay Gib­son will be ex­hibit­ing her work.
