GUILDFORD Grammar School will host its 17th annual art exhibition and sale this weekend.

This year’s feature artists include Olga Cironis, Kathryn Haug and Minaxi May.

Local artist and Old Guildfordian Imogen Palmer will paint one of her many travel photographs at the official opening tonight and chat to anyone who wants to know more about the piece or the story behind it.

Palmer’s artwork is a mixture of expressive and intricate works that express her thoughts and feelings of the world and her subjects.

She deconstructs ideas and processes to push meaning and context into her drawings and paintings.

Her vision is to not only produce meaningful works that appeal visually, but also to embody the soul of the subject through her own eyes.

Many of her works are inspired by her travels and volunteering around the works and the many different people, places, animals and faces she has encountered.

The exhibition will be open to the public on Saturday, October 7 to Monday, October 9 from 10am to 4pm and on Tuesday, October 10, from 9am to 1pm.

The school’s community High Tea on Sunday features fashion parades with the latest looks from Trends Boutique and entertainment by Jean-Trent.

Tickets $25 each and can be bought online at http://www.ggs.wa.edu.au/2017hightea.
