Art Feast 2018, on the 19th and 20th of May, is a FEAST for all our senses. Simultaneously building up, and bringing together the local community, through a celebration of the arts and additionally supporting a local charity, Bush Kids Bundaberg.
The event includes a two day Art Exhibition, featuring artists from the surrounding Bundaberg Region, fantastic workshops making your own works of art, and the highlight of the weekend, a themed cocktail evening in a beautifully-lit garden setting.
Artists from far and wide, have been traveling to Art Feast for three years now, in what has become a very successful exhibition. This year, as well as in past years, a donation will be made to Bush Kids Bundaberg, from art sale commissions. So your purchase of art from a local artist, will also be supporting free healthcare to children and their families living in remote communities. Throughout the day, you will also be entertained by St Luke’s students showing off their varying talents, from the Senior String Ensemble, to the Saxophone and Brass Ensemble, and the Vocalists as well. We will also have children’s entertainment throughout the day, to cater for peaceful adult art viewing!
Our workshops will be held over the whole weekend, and this year we are fortunate to have three wonderfully talented artists:
