High school students express talents in new exhibition

An upcoming exhibition at Redland Art Gallery, Capalaba is set to celebrate the artistic talent of Redland high schools students.

High Schools in Focus II will run from Saturday 25 November 2017 until Saturday 20 January 2018, combining artworks from Carmel College, Cleveland District State High School, Faith Lutheran College Redlands, Ormiston College and Sheldon College students.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said High Schools In Focus II – the second of a two part exhibition – was a great example of the outstanding results that could be achieved when different organisations and individuals worked in partnership towards a common goal.

“As part of this project, school students were given the opportunity to collaborate within a gallery environment, harnessing new skills and giving them added confidence to follow artistic pursuits,” Cr Williams said

Students were encouraged to use a range of mediums including painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, sculpture, textiles and new media to create a piece to the theme of ‘identity’.

“The end result is a diverse, inspiring and thought-provoking collection of artworks that give us a rare insight into issues driving young people in our community.”

The exhibition will be officially opened at 10.30am on Saturday 25 November with a floor talk from exhibition Curator, Dominique Macedo.
