At the St George’s Art Gala Awards Night on Thursday 28 July, Stefano Carboni, Director of the Art Gallery of WA, awarded prizes to nine selected artworks.

About St George’s Art:

St George’s Art is WA’s premier art exhibition for students in Years 10-12.  Now in its ninth year, the event has this year grown to include over 120 artworks from 43 high schools in all educational sectors.

The students gain valuable experience from participating in this professionally curated exhibition, and the catalogue provides an excellent addition to each artist’s portfolio.  Many of the younger students go on to exhibit their work in the Year 12 Perspectives exhibition at the Art Gallery of WA.

Seating down both side-aisles of the Cathedral was moved out to make room for the thirteen-day exhibition, transforming the Gothic revival building into a unique and beautiful art gallery.  

St George’s Art 2011 is open until 4 August, from 10.00am to 4.00pm daily.

The winners are:

Overall Winner and 2D Category Winner: Michelle Waldeck, Mandurah Baptist College, for Strings Attached (oil on canvas)

Aboriginal culture is disappearing in the face of western commercialism, so much so that many corroborees will not be performed without a fee.

3D Category Winner: Breana Liddington, Winthrop Baptist College, for Untitled (mixed media)

My work is a self-portrait that depicts the various aspects of my personality that create and shape me as a person.  Each object that is present within the nest is then explained within the accompanying mixed media book. The work overall is therefore an exploration of my identity. In many ways however I came to the conclusion at the end of this project that much of my identity is still unresolved and unwritten.

Digital Category Winner: Ryan Lambe, Sacred Heart College, for Self-Portrait (spray paint, digital images, digital print)

This digital print depicts a corner of my room, which reflects myself and my life.  This is a self-portrait as it represents my interests and influences, being the street life.

On the Year 12 South West Art Camp I saw an area of land that had just been through a fire.  This work is in response to that and it expresses my thoughts on revigoration of the forest after it has been destroyed.
