About

Brighton Primary Art Show

Brighton Primary Art Show Committee are proud once again to be staging their second Art Show event with proceeds going towards improving school grounds and The Mirabel Foundation.

The Brighton Primary Art Show is an exhibition with a focus on showcasing an eclectic display of traditional and contemporary artworks by drawing talents from the school parent & friends community, from local artist societies and invited artists alike.

More than 80 adult artists will exhibit this year using various mediums including pastels, oil and acrylic paints, watercolor, sculpture, photography, ceramic and textiles etc. All artworks will be available for sale.

A new section is being created for any interested senior students of Brighton Primary to participate & experience working alongside the art show committee to organise and exhibit their own artworks.

The venue is 'Billilla', an historical mansion set in beautiful garden surroundings. 'Billilla' is now home to the arts, drama and music studies for Xavier College students and other members of the community. Xavier College kindly offer 'Billilla' for our use.

The exhibition will be open to the general public over three days beginning with an opening night event to be held on Friday 18th July, featuring live music, supper, drinks and an auction.

During the weekend children will be entertained with planned activities. The Arthouse Café will be serving aromatic coffee, teas . hot chocolates and offering a delectable selection of cakes and savouries.

Brighton Primary School

Brighton Primary School has been educating the children of the Brighton community for 128 years. Their mission is 'to provide an International centre for learning where excellence, high achievement and creativity will enable all students to contribute to the global community.' To this end they were awarded an international baccalaureate status in 2006.

The Mirabel Foundation

The Mirabel Foundation was first established in Victoria in 1998 to assist children who have been orphaned or abandoned due to parental illicit drug use.

Mirabel is the only organisation in Australia specifically addressing the needs of this vulnerable group of children, the most profoundly overlooked casualties of substance abuse in our society. Mirabel supports children aged 0-17 years and works at restoring a child's sense of self-worth, belonging and hope for the future in order for them to reach their full potential as young adults. Mirabel believes that investing in children is the most compassionate and economic investment we can make. Whether it is done financially, emotionally, or by lessening the stigma and feelings of isolation, both the community and these children will reap the rewards.
