Each year, this exhibition recognises the outstanding achievements of art students from secondary schools throughout Queensland, including those in regional and remote communities. An initiative of the Department of Education and Training, the ‘Creative Generation Excellence Awards’ invite the submission of paintings, sculptures, works on paper and new media. Short-listed art works are showcased in regional exhibitions, with the winners subsequently displayed at GoMA. Award recipients join professional artists for a five-day residential workshop in September.
The Creative Generation Excellence Awards are an initiative of the Department of Education and Training, and supported by the Queensland Art Gallery and Museum and Gallery Services Queensland.
An exhibition catalogue is available for purchase from the Gallery Store. Alternatively, you can choose to download a free copy here.
