Facets of Fairholme 2018

‘Facets of Fairholme’ - 2018 Art Exhibition


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 on the 3 – 4 August 2018.

The intent of the ‘Facets of Fairholme’ Art Exhibition 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.
