Students' creative flare on show

DREAMS came true for young aspiring artists with the opening of Emerge, the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery's exhibition of local secondary students' works, last night.

Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery marketing officer Chloe Camilleri said the exhibition featured work of students in Year 8 to 12 from Bundaberg Christian College, Bundaberg State High School, Isis District State High School, North Bundaberg State High School, Shalom College and St Luke's Anglican School.

“There are some really interesting pieces this year. I think the students and teachers have really pushed the boundaries,” Ms Camilleri said.

According to Ms Camilleri, the annual secondary school exhibition was always great to see due to the variety and pieces, and how much it differed from year to year.

“It is a good opportunity for the students to engage with their art and experience the process of representing in a real gallery,” she said.

Emerge • Student works are pre-selected by teachers before the gallery chooses the final selection • Exhibition will be open until November 29
