Hours, days and sometimes weeks of artistic work was on display at this year’s ArtFeast supported by St Luke’s Anglican School.

It was clear by looking at the 128 pieces of work made by artists in the Bundaberg Region that the town is full of talent and even flair.

St Luke’s School events and community engagement coordinator Tim Sayre said a lot of preparation had gone in to the event, which was in its fourth year.

“It’s been a big couple of days,” Mr Sayre said.

“There’s a range of art on display, from mosaics works to pastels, oils and everything in between.

“I mean there is really some phenomenal art pieces here – the artists have put in their heart and soul to each piece.”

The event also drew not only lovers of art from the community, but also previous students and their families.

St Luke's past school captain Jemma Joiner went along with her parents Jon and Sharon Joiner; and they said the event was always good to attend.

“It really supports the artists in the region,” Mr Joiner said.

“We’ve been every year it’s been held and really enjoy it.”

School parent Suzi Carson said it was a chance for students to show off their artwork with more well-known artists from the region.

“Summer Farrelly’s chicken artwork is just amazing, she used to be a student here,” she said.

“There is just so much talent in the Bundaberg Region.”

Also on show was well-known local indigenous artist Chern’ee Sutton along with her younger sister Brooke.

With a total of eight pieces between them, community members were taken to the dreamtime as they perused the art.

A cocktail and canape evening is under way this evening and the exhibition can be viewed again on Sunday, along with a number of workshops.

Mr Sayre said the annual event raised money for St Luke’s P&F and Burnett Youth Learning Centre.
