Words by Jodie Powell

More than 280 works from talented artists across the Moreton Bay Region have their art on display for this year’s Youth Art Awards.

Pine Rivers Art Gallery leader Kristina Sinclair says the 2022 awards attracted more 3D entries than in past years and the standard was higher than ever.

She says judge Phoebe Paradise spent hours at the Strathpine Community Centre making her decisions about who would win in each category – and visitors to the exhibition could have their say by voting in the People’s Choice category.

There are $200 prizes for the best individual entry in each of the four grade groups, and in each of the two categories – 2D artwork and 3D artwork.

In the collaborative section, groups can win a $1000 scholarship to be spend on art workshops for their school.

Winners will be announced on Saturday.

Get creative

Kristina says visitors to the exhibition will be able to create work of their own influenced by Paradise’s work, which will be on show in a solo exhibition - inspired by the streets of Strathpine, Bray Park and Albany Creek – at the Pine Rivers Art Gallery from November 5.

“The activity will also go across to the Pine Rivers Art gallery for the exhibition,” she says.

Kristina says there’s strong advocacy for youth art in the Moreton Bay Region.

“Our art teachers’ network is region-wide, so we have very strong support.”

The 2022 Moreton Bay Region Art Awards are on show at the Strathpine Community Centre, Unit 7, 199 Gympie Rd, Strathpine.

The exhibition is open 3-6pm on weekdays and 10am-4pm Saturday and Sunday. It closes on Sunday, October 23.
