2020 BGS Art Show

We are excited to announce that the 2020 BGS Art Show will be online as a virtual show this year. More information will be shared with the community shortly.

The Brisbane Grammar School Art Show has been a fixture on the School’s cultural calendar for more than 50 years. Art allows us to express ideas, challenge preconceptions, tell stories and record our history. It has a way of bringing everyone together – all cultures and all levels of our society.

The BGS Art Show is not a student exhibition but rather a collection of professional artists works available for sale. It is organised by parent volunteers in the Art Support Group. Many works held in the BGS Art Collection have been acquired through purchases at this event using funds raised from the show. Other funds are directed towards Art education at BGS.

We are fortunate to receive wonderful support from sponsors each year. Traditionally the BGS Art Show plays a significant role in our community – from inspiring students seeing the collection in the lead-up to the show, to parents and guests celebrating and purchasing professional art works on the Gala Opening Night.

In addition, the BGS Art Show demonstrates to the wider community during Open Day that BGS truly offers a broad liberal education that values cocurricular activities and the Arts.

It is a special event that brings the school community together to include past, present and future students, along with their families.

The annual BGS Art Show accompanies the celebrations of Open Day. The Art Support Group has operated for over 50 years, raising funds for the development and maintenance of the School's art collection, which is displayed throughout the campus. The Art Show aims to enrich the cultural lives of students and the wider BGS community.

Please visit the BGS Art Show social media pages for more information and previews of available works.
