The 24th Secondary Angelico Exhibition for Catholic Students held its official ceremony and awards presentation on Tuesday 15 August, with representatives from over twenty Catholic schools in attendance at the Forrest Centre in Perth’s CBD. Named after the Blessed Fra Angelico, Patron before God of Artists, the exhibition features the top Visual Arts works from Years 7-12 across Western Australia. Catholic Education WA CEO Dr Tim McDonald was also on hand to assist with the prizegiving.
The College congratulates Tyler Sandon, Year 11, for winning the prestigious Fra Angelico Award 2017. Tyler’s coloured pencil drawing ‘Identities’ was selected as the artwork which most embraced and upheld Catholic beliefs and values. Lloniq Lai, Year 11, was runner-up in the Fra Angelico category for her coloured pencil drawing titled ‘Proverbs 22:9’. Lloniq’s work was also nominated for the Caritas Award 2017, which this year was themed ‘Love Your Neighbour’.
The College congratulates Presley O’Brien, Year 10, who won the Exhibition’s junior category with his 2D acrylic painting ‘Reflections’. In a competitive category which encompassed Years 7-10, Presley’s stellar achievement should not be underestimated.
The Angelico Exhibition is staged annually by Catholic Arts. This year’s exhibited artworks were thematically diverse, with many bold statements depicted through a strong use of colour or clever use of mixed media.
The College would like to thank the Visual Arts team, led by Mrs Gaby Fabris, and highly commends all students whose work was exhibited in 2017. As we head into the mid-point of Term 3, the College is already excited for all the works-in-progress that are coming into fruition for Semester 2.
The Angelico Exhibitions runs until Friday 25 August at the Forrest Centre, Perth.
