St George's Art

WA's premier annual exhibition of works by senior high students delivers a fascinating insight into the lives and minds of an emerging generation. Studying the arts has been shown to increase empathy and compassion, encourage new ways of looking at things, and develop the creativity essential to progress - qualities the world needs more than ever.

St George's Art is an opportunity to see this effect in action. The young artists gain valuable experience from participating in a professionally curated exhibition, many going on to display their work in the prestigious Pulse Perspectives (formerly Year 12 Perspectives) at the Art Gallery of WA.

As the premier art exhibition for students in Years 10-12, St George's Art is now considered the precursor to Pulse. St George's Art is open to all WA high schools at no charge. So many schools are keen to participate that the maximum number of artworks per school has been limited to three, ensuring the highest quality works from the state's top young talent.

Perth's Gothic Revival Cathedral will be transformed into a unique art gallery for the nine-day winter exhibition. This includes moving out the seating to make way for more than 140 artworks to be displayed along the aisles. Around 3,000 visitors flock to St George's Art, each year bringing more and different perspectives on the world from today's teens.

The works allow a rare insight into the minds of a generation that faces unique challenges. See their perspective on the issues of the day, from fake news to fashion myths, mobile tech to 'me too'.

Visitors are invited to choose the artwork that has the greatest impact on them, and vote for the People's Choice Prize, awarded at the close of the exhibition.

Entry by gold coin donation, catalogues $15.00.
