High school kids’ art on display

The creative talents of local Queensland school students will feature in Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery’s (TRAG) annual Creative Generation - Excellence Awards in visual Art 2022 exhibition from Saturday, 5 November to 4 December.

Examples of the artwork on display include Lost Cause by Toowoomba Christian College student Katelynn Grobler.

The exhibition has been a feature on the Gallery’s calendar since 1990 and highlights visual art works of students from Queensland state and non-state schools.

Coordinator Edward Lucas (Teacher, The Arts, Toowoomba Christian College) said the program was an amazing opportunity for secondary school students to showcase their art works for the world to see.

“Our regions secondary Visual Art students are so talented and spend considerable time and effort to complete quality artworks that are worthy for the world stage,” Mr Lucas said.

“The program also inspires younger generations to recognise their potential in the creative sector.

“The program was available when I was an art  student and I remember feeling a sense of wonder every time I saw the central exhibition as a teenager.

“Now as a Visual Arts teacher, it is always an exciting occasion, endorsing the program to my own students and encouraging them to be brave by submitting their own artworks to the program.

“Working with TRAG has been a wonderful experience. 

“The team is exceptional and highly experienced in curating. 

“Every year we see a diverse range of works in all shapes and sizes, mediums and styles.”

Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery, 531 Ruthven Street Toowoomba, is open from 10.30am to 3.30pm Wednesday to  Sunday.

It is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and public holidays.

Entry is free. For further information contact the Gallery on 4688 6652.
