The Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art promote and recognise excellence in senior visual art education and student achievement in visual art throughout Queensland’s state and non-state schools.
The artworks in this exhibition demonstrate the breadth of media and approaches in the visual arts and the sophistication of concepts explored by students throughout senior study. Through visual art, students express contemporary ideas that delve into personal inspiration, issues and insight.
The awards offer the only collective exhibition of senior student artwork from each region of Queensland. This exhibition features works from schools in the North Coast (north) region stretching from Bundaberg to Gympie.
The awards has led to widespread recognition of the excellent work senior visual art students are producing, as well as enabling students and teachers throughout the state to share and appreciate the diversity of artwork being produced in Queensland secondary schools.
