Mary's College launched Fraser Coast’s latest artistic event… The Twenty20
the Virtual Twenty20 exhibition on Thursday 13 August at St Mary's College, was
Mayor George Seymour, Principal Stephan le Roux and Teacher of Visual Art Tim
Last year's Twenty19 Exhibition launch was
attended by hundreds of supportive community members, with the night including
musical and performance entertainment alongside the amazing visual works of art
at Gatakers Art space, a highlight of the visual arts calendar. Due to the
impacts of COVID19 and community safety concerns this year, the College
recognised the need to redesign the exhibition without compromising the
students ability to display their artworks in a gallery.
College’s focus on progressive technologies influenced the direction of the
COVID safe event. It was decided that the exhibition would go virtual, giving
the power to visit the gallery to everyone interested, anywhere in the world.
Students have been working on submissions in the classroom and at home, with
contributions including paint, drawing, photography, mixed media, digital art,
installation art and performance with all entries included in the virtual
exhibition. Mr Chamberlain was the brains behind such a forward initiative and
the designer of the online space. This is an experience we encourage all to
enjoy and St Mary's College invites the Fraser Coast to visit the exhibition
from the comfort of your phone, laptop or digital device, and take a walk in
the virtual art world.
