Students from 14 schools across the cities of Wanneroo, Joondalup and Stirling will feature in the latest exhibition at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre Gallery.
Northern Perspectives provides year 11 and 12 students the opportunity to exhibit their work in a quality public forum, encouraging them to continue their art outside the nurturing environment of school.
The 2017 exhibition features 41 entries across a range of categories; painting, drawing, etching and mixed media, 3D (sculpture and ceramics), textiles and wearable art, and digital, including photography.
Schools involved in the exhibition include: Balcatta Senior High, Churchlands Senior High, Girrawheen Senior High, Kingsway Christian College, Lake Joondalup Baptist College, Mercy College, Mindarie Senior College, Perth College, Peter Moyes Anglican Community School, Prendiville Catholic College, St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School, St Stephen’s School Carramar, St Stephen’s School Duncraig and Wanneroo Secondary College.
Category winners will be awarded prior to the exhibition opening to the public, however the People’s Choice Award will be decided by the audience, so make sure you vote for your favourite artwork.
Another smaller exhibition, Claimed Lands: The impact of colonisation on the Western Australian landscape, will be held in conjunction with Northern Perspectives, as well as workshops by artist and recent University of Western Australia art graduate Jess Hart.
Northern Perspectives opens to the public on Saturday, 25 February, and runs until Saturday, 8 April.
The Gallery is open 10am – 4pm daily except Sundays and public holidays.
Entry is free.
