Golding Showcase Port Curtis Callide Valley Youth Art Exhibition
– Installation Day 
 
On Thursday the 9th of August, eleven enthusiastic Visual Art students attended a workshop at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum, which allowed them to experience a real exhibition installation for the Goldings Showcase. The students engaged in discussion around gallery protocols and the correct handling of works, before being shown how to install the work themselves. All gallery staff and volunteers expressed how impressed they were with the students’ attention to detail and professional manner. The students themselves were also very proud of their work! 
 
Congratulations Visual Art students on a beautiful installation and seizing this wonderful opportunity to connect with the community for some hands on experience.  


 
Golding Showcase Port Curtis Callide Valley Youth Art Exhibition
 – Official Launch and Exhibition 
 
This year Toolooa was invited to host the Golding Showcase at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum. Our students were involved in a variety of activities to make the launch night and exhibition run as smoothly and fantastic as ever. A range of visual art students from grade 10, 11 and 12 submitted artwork to be displayed in the exhibition. Many of these students were also involved in installing all of the artwork from schools around the region. 
 
On Friday 10th August, the local community was invited to view the exhibition at the official launch. This was a brilliant event that was supported by Toolooa students. Guests were greeted and entertained by music students who were playing a range of beautifully played songs and were later served food by a number of hospitality students. All students involved in the exhibition should be extremely proud of their effort towards making the night a great success! 
 
The exhibition will run until Friday 28th September and is open to the public.
