Art Exhibition at Fairholme

2020 Facets: An Art Exhibition at Fairholme - Event Cancelled.

Facets feature 2020

Exhibition Background

In 2017, Fairholme College, (a College of the Presbyterian Church of Queensland), celebrated ‘100 Years At Fairholme’ and as a part of the festivities to mark this exciting milestone, an inaugural Art Exhibition, the ‘Facets of Fairholme’, was held at the College. Following on from the success of this boutique exhibition, plans are underway to host another such event in 2020.

The intent of Facets: An Art Exhibition at Fairholme is to offer Artists, Students and audience members a shared platform in which to intellectually engage in the expression of lateral thought and current arts practices, by exploring human experiences and encouraging, challenging and provoking new ways of connecting and appreciating the world around us.

Exhibition Brief

Now in its fourth year, the ‘Facets’ committee is delighted to invite artists to an open call for submissions for this year’s Art Exhibition. Held late May 2020, the exhibition will provide local, regional, national and international artists an exciting opportunity to exhibit their works in a refined, boutique setting. Up to 200 works will be exhibited and these works will vie for a number of awards and acquisition.

The Organising Committee are seeking a diverse range of artworks, reflecting a variety of subject matter, processes and mediums. Fairholme reserves the right of final approval of all works to be exhibited, in particular those that do not reflect the intention of the Exhibition or the values of the College.
