The Stuartholme Centennial Art Show committee warmly welcomes you to our online exhibition and event.
The CAS 2020 is a celebration of works of emerging and professional artists with connections to our community. It is organised by our alumnae, the Stuartholme Sacre Coeur Association.
Tickets to the opening night, Saturday Sept 12th 6-9pm are for sale at: https://events.humanitix.com/stuartholme-centennial-art-show-opening-night
The event will be running with a COVID safe plan in place.
In the unlikely event of cancellation, the ticket price (less unrecoverable costs) is refundable but we would be most grateful if the remaining cost of the ticket could be donated to the Alumni Bursary fund.
The show is also open on Sunday September 13th 10am – 4.00pm (free entry) at Stuartholme School 365 Birdwood Tce, Toowong. Brisbane.
All works are available for sale and the funds go towards the gift of a Stuartholme education for daughters and granddaughters of alumnae who are experiencing financial difficulty.
Many thanks to our generous sponsors who have contributed to the bursary by supporting the Centennial Art Show.
Thanks also to our wonderful artists who have donated prints, paintings and jewellery to the show: Nic Olsen, Fiona Chivers, Nick Coulson, Catherine Baudet, Kristin Mountjoy, Pierina Curties, Natasha Deardon and Charlotte Dirou.
We hope our second exhibition unites the creatives and alum who have passed through Stuartholme, the current students who have participated in our Art with Heart exhibition, their parents and the wider community.
