Winner of the People's Choice Award: Innocence by Tyson Rauh, aged 16 of Corpus Christi College

The St George's Cathedral Art Awards and Exhibition once again attracted the best of Western Australia’s emerging young artists.

Pews were moved out to make room for 150 artworks from 23 schools to be placed along the aisles of the Cathedral, turning the magnificent building into a unique art gallery for nine days.

The exhibition took Connectivity as its theme, with participants invited to explore the physical, emotional, technological and spiritual connections between humanity and the world around us, through any medium of visual art.

The public were invited to view the artworks and place their vote for the People’s Choice prize, awarded at the close of the exhibition.

The works were judged by a panel of three Perth artists, and the awards presented at the exhibition opening by Education Minister, Dr Elizabeth Constable MLA. Winners received cash prizes up to $500.

"Events such as this wonderful exhibition are important for the development of our young artists," said Dr Constable. I am encouraged by their thoughtful engagement with the theme of Connectivity

"The work presented is broad in scope, thought-provoking and a testament to the quality, and future success of our young artists."

"Inclusion in this exhibition should be considered prestigious and significant,"said Julia Wren, Visual Art Lecturer at the ECU School of Education, and Curator of the exhibition. "It also contributes to artists’ prominence in the visual arts exhibition scene in Perth."

1st prize went to Grace Lee-Tuck, aged 17 of St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, for Mind, Body, Soul (mixed media)
2nd prize was presented to Madeleine Schipper, aged 14 of St Stephen’s School, for Self Portrait (mixed media)
Two equal 3rd prizes were awarded to Lauren Baker, aged 17 of Perth College, for Genes of Hope (acrylic on canvas), and Audrey Pieterse, aged 16 of Kingsway Christian College, for Connected Self-reflection (oil on canvas)

The People’s Choice was awarded to Tyson Rauh, aged 16 of Corpus Christi College, for Innocence (digital) - pictured above.
