Creativity takes courage (Henri Matisse 1889-1954)
Supporting the Creative Arts is paramount to human enlightenment and we are delighted to announce that, after a 15-year hiatus, TSS will host an Art Show 2-3 August 2019.
TSS Art Show will include works from both Prep and Senior students as well as an extensive collection of works by professional artists of national repute. Works in the exhibition will be available for purchase with the proceeds of the sale of all boys’ works going to support the Livin Organisation, a locally based organisation supporting and assisting those suffering from mental illness.
Conducted over two days, the exhibition will be much more than a simple art show. With extensive support from the Art, Music and Drama Departments, TSS Art Show will be a cultural feast of live music, drama performance, workshops, gallery walks and artist talks.
The exhibition opens on Friday 2nd August with a lavish ticketed cocktail reception held under the Clock Tower building. On Saturday 3rd August, the exhibition venues will be open for public viewing and will host artist workshops, gallery walks and artist talks. These presentations are free to all.
Inevitably, every piece of art, in its own way, speaks to us – we just have to learn how to listen. Join us at the 2019 TSS Art Show to hear what our Prep and Senior boys have to say.
