Northern Perspectives: student artwork on display at Library and Cultural Centre Gallery

ARTWORK created by students from schools in the cities of Wanneroo, Joondalup and Stirling will feature in the first exhibition of 2018 at the Library and Cultural Centre Gallery.

The fourth Northern Perspectives exhibition will open on February 16 and showcase work from more than 50 year 11 and 12 visual arts students.

Work on show includes paintings, drawings, printmaking and mixed media; sculpture and ceramics, electronics and textiles; and photography and design.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said she was proud the City gave students the unique opportunity to display their work in a professional setting.

“This is such a wonderful way for students to showcase their outstanding art to the public, and have the opportunity to offer their work for sale,” she said.

“We have also found it builds confidence and encourages them to continue their art outside the nurturing environment of school.”

Schools involved include Ashdale Secondary College, Balcatta Senior High School, Butler College, Churchlands Senior High School, Kingsway Christian College, Mercy College, Mindarie Senior College, Perth College, Peter Moyes Anglican Community School, Sacred Heart College, St Mary’s Anglican Girls School, St Stephen’s School, Carramar, St Stephen’s School, Duncraig and Wanneroo Secondary College.

An Overall Encouragement Award and City of Wanneroo Resident Encouragement Award will be presented before the exhibition officially opens, while the People’s Choice Award will be decided by patrons who vote for their favourite piece.

Northern Perspectives runs from Friday, February 16 to Thursday, March 29.

The gallery opens 10am-4pm daily except Sundays and public holidays.

Entry is free.
