2018 Art Prize Youth

Northbridge Junior Art Prize 2018

We were delighted with the creativity and talent displayed by our younger artists and hope they will continue to develop their skills. Art works were submitted by a wide range of students including from our own after school and school holiday programs as well as from North Sydney Girls' High School and elsewhere.

Our competition was judged by John Klein, a practising artist and a finalist in the Mosman, Hornsby, Lane Cove and Northbridge Art prizes to name a few. John’s beautiful work will be on display at the Incinerator Art Space, 2 Small Street Willoughby from 3 – 21 Oct 2018 Wed-Sun 10am-4pm.
This wonderful exhibition was opened by her Worship, Gail Giles-Gidney Mayor of Willoughby City who is well known in the area for her interest in community affairs.

Come and view the creative talent of our younger artists on display in Gallery 307 until 12 October.
Winning entries will then be exhibited at Northbridge Plaza from 15 October to 26 October.
