Young artists display works

SHE may be just 16 years old but Imogen Cook has a maturity to her artwork that has earned her the “Hanger’s Prize” at an exhibition of work by local high school students.

By Robyn Holmes

A Year 11 student at Atherton State High School, Imogen says she has always loved painting and many of her creations have made their way to her mother’s office walls. 

Her acrylic painting, “Roses”, is part of an exhibition involving high school students from Atherton, Ravenshoe, Malanda and Mount St Bernard College in Herberton.

Imogen took about 35 hours to complete the painting which she says is all about “bringing dark to light”. 

Around 30 pieces, including paintings and mixed media pieces, are currently on display at Atherton’s Post Office Gallery (near the Hou Wang Chinese Temple). 

The ‘SNAP’ exhibition will be on show until 30 January 2022. Opening hours are Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10am to 2pm.
