Armadale mayor Henry Zelones said 88 artists were selected to exhibit in this year’s awards, which ran as part of the Armadale Arts Festival.

“On behalf of the City I would like to congratulate all the winners, especially our local artists,” he said.

“This years’ exhibition is rather special for the City as we are able to return to our newly renovated Armadale District Hall to showcase pieces across various mediums of paint, photography and sculpture.”

The free Minnawarra Art Awards exhibition is open from 11am to 4pm until May 19 at the Armadale District Hall.
