It is that time of the year again when Bunbury’s biggest visual arts exhibition featuring young local artists takes over BRAG.
Iluka Visions opened at the gallery on 22 September with more than 201 artworks from 15 high schools from across the South West region.
The exhibition will include both two and three dimensional artworks including painting, printmaking, sculpture, drawing and photography.
BRAG Director Julian Bowron said the exhibition was a powerful demonstration of the ways in which arts participation is an important catalyst for learning and making sense of the world around us.
“I believe all visitors to Iluka Visions will be impressed by the thoughtful and creative insights of our young artists,” Mr Bowron said.
All are welcome to attend the official opening and awards night from 6pm on Friday 12 October where prizes will be awarded to the best artworks across all year levels.
The prestigious Iluka Prize will also be awarded on the night, which is offered to one Year 11 or 12 student to partake in a week-long internship at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art.
Past winners who have completed this internship have gone on to study and build careers in the arts.
This annual exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Iluka Resources.
The participating schools for 2018 are:
Australind Senior High School, Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School, Bunbury Catholic College, Bunbury Senior High School, College Row School, Collie Senior High School, Cornerstone Christian College, Dalyellup College, Donnybrook District High School, Eaton Community College, Frederick Irwin Anglican School, Grace Christian School, John Tonkin College, Manea Senior College, Manjimup Senior High School.
Iluka Visions will run from now until 18 November.
