The 2022 Chisholm Practical and Creative Arts Exhibition was opened on Monday evening with an energetic performance by our College Showband, and attracted many visitors during the week. The Exhibition is an outstanding showcase of the many creative and practical talents of our students. Excellent work in Visual Arts, Design and Technology, Home Economics, Media and Photography were on display.
We were very fortunate to have Olive Cheng (nee Monte) from the Class of 2010, as our Guest Speaker on Opening Night. Olive’s journey as she pursued her passion for Art was inspirational. From receiving the Most Promising Artist and Angelico Award in Year 12, Olive completed university degrees in Design, Landscape Architecture and primary school teaching. Her love of Art has taken her to Cape Town, Japan and Italy. Olive is now working as an artist across a range of projects, exhibiting and working on commissions. She sells her art locally to the community and has it displayed in a range of local and formal settings, including Subiaco Markets and in wider audiences in art exhibitions around WA.
It is essential that we acknowledge the current and past staff of Visual Arts, Design and Technology, Home Economics, Media and Photography, who have worked with tireless dedication to nurture and develop our students’ excellence and skills, sharing their passion for the practical and creative arts and playing a part in shaping these students and their work.
A huge thank you to Heads of Learning Area, Mr Jason Auld and Mrs Erin Maddison, their dedicated staff and some extra helpers for setting up the Exhibition; Mrs Heidi Lake and Mr Gareth Goerke for their musical direction of the College Showband; our Home Economics staff and students for preparing and serving refreshments; Mrs Aimee Iacusso and Mrs Jill Collins at the front office for their organisation extra-ordinaire; Mr Don Armstrong and Mrs Nicole Huggins, our bio box experts; the Executive Leadership Team for their assistance and all invited guests for attending on Opening Night or visiting our Exhibition throughout the week.
