Budding artists showcase talent

A number of our SCOTS PGC students jumped at the opportunity to enter the Burst 3 Youth Exhibition hosted by the Warwick Art Gallery this term.  Our local Gallery invited artists aged 6 to 25 years who live on the Southern Downs to participate in the biennial competition with the opportunity to win a cash prize.

The exhibition, aptly called BURST, to represent the ideas and talents of our youth bursting forth onto the gallery walls, features artwork from 52 local artists.  The College is pleased to share that two of our students have received recognition for their self-expression and creativity:

Iggy King (Year 8), entered two photographs and won a commendation award for his photograph ‘Changing Perspectives the Gold Behind the Gold’.

Treshawne Achari (Year 2), entered two artworks and received an encouragement award for his oil pastel artwork ‘Unity in Diversity’.

There is still plenty of time to go and check out the exhibition for yourselves at the Warwick Art Gallery.  The Burst 3 Youth exhibition closes on 21 December.  Congratulations to all the entrants for pursuing their art – it is a fantastic achievement to be able to exhibit in a gallery!
