Fourteen Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) graduates have work included in the Year 12 Perspectives 2016 exhibition, which opened at the Art Gallery of Western Australia this week.

The annual exhibition, now in its 25th year, showcases work created by some of the State’s most talented young visual artists during their final year of school.

Graduates of Iona Presentation College, Nagle Catholic College, John XXIII College, Corpus Christi College, La Salle College, Aquinas College, Christian Brothers College Fremantle and Prendiville Catholic College all earnt their place in the exhibition, with work engaging with a wide variety of issues including identity, Australian society, gender, religion, mental illness, and human impacts on animals and the environment.

CEWA Coordinator Curriculum K-12, Arts, Genevie Baker, who was also a member of the exhibition’s judging panel this year, said the work produced by Year 12 Catholic students demonstrated the important place the arts had in CEWA schools and Colleges.

“The graduates whose work is included in this exhibition should be exceptionally proud of what they have achieved – it is a fantastic reward for them to have their creativity on display so prominently in the State Gallery,” she said.

“Catholic schools provide fantastic opportunities for students to develop their unique skills and talents, and pursue excellence in a wide range of areas. The selection of work from Catholic school students for inclusion in this exhibition shows that our students are making the most of this, and are creating art that tells stories of what they are learning and experiencing,”

Year 12 Perspectives 2016 runs until 2 April 2017, and entry is free.
