Art Show

The 2021 BGS Art Support Group is excited to announce the 52nd BGS Art Show will be held with an Opening Gala Night on Friday 11 June, and continue throughout BGS Open Day on Saturday 12 June.

This very special event in the BGS calendar is an occasion for all students, family and friends of the School, and the wider community, to come together through art.

Our community’s shared story of living in this period of uncertainty creates a bond between us and allows us to reflect on what is important. With this in mind, the name and theme of this year’s show is Embrace - The Art of Togetherness

We may not be able to physically embrace, but we do embrace the opportunity to reunite and celebrate together.

We warmly welcome our guest Feature Artist, Alexandra Matthews, along with a host of other talented artists to present a show of spectacular 2D and 3D art, photography and jewellery for your enjoyment, appreciation and purchase.

We have a wonderful opportunity at this fabulous social event to raise funds to support the arts at BGS in a variety of ways, while enjoying art and having some fun in the process!

We hope you will join us and look forward to your support.

Best wishes
Peta Spence and Rachael Browning
President and Vice President ASG
