JOIN Councillor Gail Sellers, Acting Mayor Gladstone Regional Council, at the official launch of the 16th Annual Golding Showcase: Port Curtis & Callide Valley Youth Art Exhibition, at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum, from 5.30pm on Monday evening, August 16.

The 2010 Golding Showcase is a not-to-be missed exhibition of exciting works, in a great diversity of media including photography, painting, textile and installation works created by local emerging artists, aged 15 to 18 years.

Gaining the gallery/museum experience and insight were senior art students of partner school St Stephens Lutheran College.

The students spent time assisting with the Showcase installation last week and on Monday evening, during the gala opening event, will provide entertainment and serve refreshments.

All are invited to come along to the official launch and celebrate with participating artists as they are presented certificates acknowledging their efforts by Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum Society patron Cyril Golding.

Visitors and locals will also have the chance to vote for their favourite artwork in the display to receive the People's Choice Award for 2010.

The work receiving the highest number of votes will be announced in the Gladstone Observer, on Thursday, September 9, and will go on to become the promotional image of the Golding Showcase for 2011.

The Golding Showcase is an initiative of the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum Society.

It was an exciting opportunity for a group of students at Gladstone State High School to workshop with Jason as well as visiting exhibition director Natalie Wright, co-president Design Institute Australia, Queensland Branch and colleague Lindy Osborne, lecturer Architecture Design, QUT. …
