Students to show off creativity at art expo

IPSWICH Grammar School's artistically minded have spent the better part of this year putting their imaginations to work, and now are keen to show off the results.

A vast array of work will be on display at the school as part of the five-day Ipswich Grammar School Art Show. Art students from Years 4-12 have weeded their year's work down to the best of the best - meaning several hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints and multimedia pieces can be seen.

The show is open to the public and will include the presentation of two prizes; one awarded by Art Time owner Kate Roberts and one decided by people's choice.

Art teacher Beth Barrett said the biennial art show aimed to demonstrate the creative skills and imagination of the students.

"Their creativity is evident in their work," Ms Barrett said.

"We try to include at least one work from each boy in the show."

The display will be accompanied by a performance by the school's guitar ensemble. The show will be held on the first floor of the administration building October 24-28. For details, phone 3813 9647.
