High Schools In Focus I, on display at Redland Art Gallery Capalaba from Saturday 7 October until Tuesday 21 November, combines artworks from Alexandra Hills State School, Capalaba State Senior College, Redlands College and Wellington Point State High School students.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Redland Art Gallery, local high schools and their students. The first of a two part exhibition, High Schools in Focus I is a great example of the outstanding results that can be achieved when different organisations and individuals work in partnership towards a common goal.

As part of High Schools in Focus I students were encouraged to use a wide range of mediums including painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, sculpture, textiles and new media to create an artwork around the theme of ‘identity’.

The end result is a diverse, inspiring and thought-provoking collection of artworks that give us a rare insight into issues driving young people in our community.

Join us for a floor talk and morning tea on Saturday 7 October at 10.30am to celebrate the exhibition opening and hear from exhibition curator Dominique Macedo.
