Downlands College has an extensive Arts programme, and this spills over into our major annual event - The Downlands Art Exhibition. Attracting international, national and local artists, the Downlands Art Exhibition offers viewers both contemporary and traditional artworks, creatively curated in a generous and imaginative format.


This important cultural and community event has been held annually since 1987. With around 1000 works on display in the Graham Centre at Downlands College, each year brings new surprises and interesting contrasts. 

This year's Exhibition promises to be extraordinary! The event now coincides with the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers and we are pleased to announce that the 2018 Exhibition has been accepted for inclusion into Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers Official Program.

The 2018 feature artist is our very own Fr Paul McCormack MSC. Fr Paul has developed a unique style in pastel work on paper and is quite accomplished and prolific with this challenging medium.

Gala Opening: 7pm on Friday 21 September. A fabulous night of art and friends. Limited Tickets will only be available online

Exhibition: 22 - 29 September from 10am - 4pm
