MORE than 900 artworks have featured in Calrossy’s inaugural Art and Design Showcase.
The art show opened last Friday night at Bishop Chiswell Hall at the William Cowper Campus on Moore Creek Rd and continued into Saturday, with hundreds of family and friends coming through the doors.
The works were by art students from prep right up to Year 12 in the subjects of visual arts, visual design, photography, textiles, food technology and industrial technology.
It was the first time Calrossy had undertaken such a comprehensive art show, “one of the largest and most inclusive art displays in the North West”, according to the school’s head of visual arts Jane Brennan.
Mrs Brennan, herself a well-known local artist, said the works attracted many positive comments and it was hoped the showcase would be made an annual event.
The show was opened by acclaimed Walcha-based artist Angus Nivison, the winner of the 2002 Wynne Prize for landscape art.
