Toowoomba born and internationally acclaimed artist David Hinchliffe will be feature artist at the 2018 Grammar Art Show on the weekend of March 24 and 25.

With two recent sell-out exhibitions in New York, Hinchliffe’s works are becoming increasingly sought after in Australia and across the world. Hinchliffe’s characteristic paintings of famous streetscapes of New York, London, Venice and Paris as well as familiar sights around Toowoomba are sure to be popular at the annual Grammar Art Show. “Our aim is simple,” said President of the Toowoomba Grammar School Art Show Pam Brown. “We simply try to make each art show better than last year.”

Another feature piece at the 2018 Art Show will be Prestigious, a 2.4 metre tiger valued at $18,000 by Lydia Ciconte. Painted totally with her fingers, Melbourne based Ciconte’s art is also rapidly rising in popularity.

The greater community is welcome to attend the exhibition and enjoy the collection of 600 paintings, ceramics, vases, jewellery and photography ranging from $40 to $18,000. With more than 200 talented artists exhibiting, including 30 new artists this year, there will be a fabulous and diverse collection of art to savour, aiming to provide something for everyone’s taste.

Previews of the art can be seen on Facebook and Instagram @grammarARTshow, with new images posted daily in the six weeks prior to the Grammar Art Show, which is held every year shortly before the Easter school holidays.

Tickets for opening night and high tea are available online or by phoning 07 4687 2500. Book your tickets early, as they are limited and often sell out. The Art Show and coffee shop are open 10am to 4pm, with door entry into the Art Show $5 on 24 and 25 March.
