All systems go for Grafton High art comp
STUDENTS and co-ordinators have been busy collating the final entries to Grafton High School's Go Art Exhibition ahead of tomorrow night's big unveiling.
Grafton High School art teacher and Go Art co-ordinator Cassandra Palmer said there were hundreds of entries this year, even if some were received a little past the due date.
"For the Young Writers Award, we have about 30 entries in both Primary and Secondary," she said.
"In the art competition, we get a really high standard every year, and we have some previous winners who have put stuff in."
"The acrylic section is always a big one."
The winners will be revealed tonight at an opening event sure to be a hit with nibbles, drinks and live music alongside some of the Clarence's most creative work.
"We are going to have a little reading corner for the Young Writers Award, so there will be the entries in booklets and beanbags to sit on,"
Ms Palmer and the students were proud to be a part of the exhibition unique to Grafton High School.
The competition was a chance for people who "wouldn't traditionally" go to a gallery to enjoy the creativity.
"We have professional artists, and amateur artists and student artists all in the one place. It is a great chance for students to see a high calibre of art,"
The exhibition opens tomorrow night at Grafton High School MPC from 6pm.
