At this year’s Art Extraordinaire at Bunbury Catholic College, WA artists are coming together to raise money for mental health. Now in its 39th year, the exhibition showcases the work of emerging and established artists and serves as the school’s biggest annual fundraiser. The well-known exhibition and auction raises awareness of the visual arts across the South West and provides an opportunity to promote peer connections and wellbeing among students and the wider community. This year’s exhibition will coincide with Mental Health Week, with proceeds going towards funding the Teen Mental Health First Aid program and the Resilience Project. Proceeds from the exhibition go towards additional resources and spaces for students to connect with peers and engage in art, music, literature and sport. Bunbury Catholic College has committed to funding the Resilience Project’s education programs across the college at a cost of $21,000 over the next six years. Art Extraordinaire features a range of creative media including painting, mixed media, sculpture, glass, ceramics and wearable art including jewellery and textiles. There will be 2D art from well-known names such as Andrew Frazer, Charlotte White, Leon Pericles, Helena Sahm and Jenni Doherty available for purchase. The exhibition starts tomorrow with an opening night and artwork auction and will be open for public viewing until Sunday afternoon.
