An array of bright and colourful art from more than 100 artists will be on display for the 38th Bunbury Catholic College Art Extraordinaire this weekend.

Event chairwoman Jennifer Hill said this year’s event had an exceptional expression of interest from emerging and established artists.

“We are excited to have our 38th Art Extraordinaire which is the biggest fundraiser for the year for the college,” Mrs Hill said.

“There will be more than 300 art pieces from 2D to 3D art from various artists.

“We have had the biggest response we have ever had from artists from the South West and some from Perth.”

Former Bunbury Catholic College student Andrew Fraser said he was humbled to create his third mural for the college following this year’s theme of Renewal.

“This piece talks of the Australian bush and bushfires that occur in the region, but this is focusing on that renewal process that comes through heating of the bush and the rejuvenation process and that new lease of life when it comes to nature.

“For me being able to come to the college is really special, its nice to be able to contribute back to the school and it is a credit to the school to have an Art Extraordinaire.

“The exhibition is something that has a lot of legacy here at the school and to see it come back is really special because it is a great way to connect the school with the wider community.”

The show will open at 7pm tomorrow in the college hall and will close on Sunday.
