MANDURAH Baptist College Year 11 student Nina Mansfield took out the people’s choice award in the Young Artists Perspective 2017 at Mandurah Art Gallery.

Mansfield took more than 120 votes of the 750 votes received.

She said the exhibition had been a great opportunity and winning the award had increased her confidence.

The exhibition, designed to showcase the diverse works made by emerging young artists in the region, has been an annual event since 1998 and supports young artists in developing their creative skills, artistic perspective, conceptual ideas and presentation skills in a professional gallery exhibition space.

Celebrating and raising awareness of the creative talents of young people in the Peel, Murray and Rockingham regions, the exhibition was coordinated by artist Linda Jones and included painting, sculpture, printmaking, digital works and new media.

A feature was a series of collaborative works between students and professional artists Carol Nicholson and Helen Coleman.
