THE works of local Mandurah artists aged 13 to 25 were recognised and celebrated at the Masterpieces 2K18 art competition and exhibitions awards.

The artwork was a culmination of young artists’ video pieces created during projectioneering workshops, run by audio-visual artist and music director Roly Skender and presented by Art on the Move.

With the number of entries up 16 per cent this year, the competition showcases the depth of talent and explores the current social perspectives of Mandurah’s creative youth community.

The competition encouraged participating artists to submit drawings, paintings, urban art, photography and digital media.

The exhibition runs until May 13.

The exhibition’s free artists talk is at Contemporary Arts Space Mandurah on Sunday, May 13 at 2pm.
