School art auc­tion show­cases tal­ent

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Art cre­ated by high school stu­dents and staff will be go­ing un­der the ham­mer to­mor­row night.

Mt Al­bert Gram­mar School is hold­ing its eighth an­nual auc­tion to raise money to as­sist the growth of the vis­ual arts depart­ment.

The event show­cases the ‘‘tremen­dous artis­tic tal­ent of our vis­ual arts stu­dents and gives th­ese up-and-com­ing young artists the op­por­tu­nity to ex­hibit to the pub­lic and to gain some wellde­served recog­ni­tion for their tal­ents’’, a spokes­woman from the school says.

Stu­dents have been in­volved in the whole process from brain­storm­ing artis­tic ideas and pro­mo­tion to work­ing as wait­ers and auc­tion spot­ters on the night.

They also ben­e­fit from the auc­tion by re­ceiv­ing 50 per cent of the money from the sale of their work.

Art works can viewed from 5pm.

Twenty-five ma­jor paint­ings will be auc­tioned from 7pm, with an ad­di­tional 50 pieces be­ing of­fered in the silent auc­tion that runs from 5pm to 6.45pm.

A cash bar will be avail­able and com­pli­men­tary canapes.

The MAGS An­nual Art Auc­tion is at Mt Al­bert Gram­mar, Al­ber­ton Ave.

Tick­ets cost $5 and are avail­able at the door.
