THE 18th Youth Art Perspective at Mandurah Art Gallery provides students with a forum to express their ambitions and apprehensions, and that of society about the future.

It also offers an insight into youth values and encourages discussions on contemporary cultural and social issues.

The exhibition was co-ordinated by artist Linda Jones and includes painting, sculpture, printmaking, digital works and new media.

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

Recipients of the Peel Regional Youth Art Perspective highly commended awards were Olivia Dunn (Pinjarra Senior High School), Claire Gallash (Frederick Irwin Anglican School), Carly Henderson-Jones (John Tonkin College), Tiana Cull (Mandurah Catholic College), Laura Hickey (Coodanup Community College), Paige Crabb (Foundation Christian College), Kyanrna Humphreys (Mandurah Baptist College) and Danna Gonzalvo (Halls Head Community College).

Voting for the People’s Choice Award is open until the exhibition closes on October 8.
