Today St Mary's College launched Fraser Coast’s latest artistic event… The Twenty20 exhibition


 

Launching 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 Chamberlain.

 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.

 

St Mary's 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.
