Community Art Exhibition 2018 winners
Susan Hoy is the overall prize winner of the City of Joondalup’s 2018 Community Art Exhibition.
This year’s exhibition which was launched earlier this evening at The Great Space, Lakeside Joondalup Shopping City.
Featuring the work of local artists, all of whom are either residents of the City or members of a non-profit visual arts association within the City, Hoy won the coveted prize for the most outstanding work in any media category for her piece entitled Angel of the Northern Suburbs.
Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said there had been an amazing response to this year’s CAE with 153 works of art on display.
“There is still time for shoppers who visit Lakeside Joondalup to visit the exhibition over the next two weeks and enjoy the fantastic works produced by the local arts community,” Mayor Jacob said.
“With a total prize pool over $8,250 and one artist selected for a $3,000 commission to produce an artwork for the City’s Inside-Out Billboard project, it’s little wonder this year’s exhibition has generated so much interest.
“The City of Joondalup has always been, and remains a big supporter of the arts and views an active arts program as an investment in promoting the City as a cultural destination. We will continue to support the local visual arts community as more and more people make the thriving northern corridor of Perth their home.”
In total, nine awards were announced on Saturday night with the Popular Choice Award, given to the artwork that receives the most votes from the public, to be revealed later this month. Electronic voting is available through the iPad station located at the sales desk. Every person that casts a vote goes into the draw to win a $50 voucher for Frendz Arts and Crafts.
The winner of the Art In Focus Award wins $500.00 and a solo exhibition to be held at the Joondalup Art Gallery in 2019. This solo show is an exciting opportunity for an emerging artist.
Another exhibiting artist will be awarded a $3000 commission to produce an artwork that will be photographed and printed onto canvas to be displayed on the Inside-Out Billboard later this year. Last year’s Inside-Out commission was awarded to Judy Rogers. Her artwork, Skinny White Girl was installed on the City Library between October 2017- March 2018.
This year’s exhibition will close at 5.00pm on Friday 22 June.
