Cre­ativ­ity on dis­play

Broome Advertiser - - Happenings - Carly Laden

Chi­na­town Re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion con­struc­tion projects may have started on Dampier Terrace but that hasn’t stopped St Mary’s Col­lege sec­ondary stu­dents from show­cas­ing their artis­tic ef­forts.

A pop-up art ex­hi­bi­tion at a va­cant space in Dampier House of­fi­cially opened on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 21, dis­play­ing paint­ings, wood­work cre­ations and pho­to­graphs cre­ated and cap­tured by the stu­dents over the course of sev­eral weeks.

Al­lure South Sea Pearls came on board with the ex­hi­bi­tion, do­nat­ing a peo­ple’s choice prize to a lucky voter.

Other Chi­na­town busi­nesses were also en­cour­aged to donate prizes for the stu­dents who cre­ated win­ning designs, sculp­tures and pho­tos — to be an­nounced on Fri­day, Novem­ber 30.

Par­ents, stu­dents and teach­ers who at­tended the of­fi­cial open­ing ad­mired the cre­ative tal­ent on dis­play, view­ing each cre­ation in awe and strug­gling to pick a favourite for the Peo­ple’s Choice Award.

Fol­low­ing the pop-up ex­hi­bi­tion, Al­lure South Sea Pearls and St Mary’s Col­lege hope to cre­ate a small art trail around Chi­na­town show­cas­ing the win­ning pieces.
