The fourth North­ern Per­spec­tives ex­hi­bi­tion opened at the Wanneroo Li­brary and Cul­tural Cen­tre Gallery last month. It show­cases works by more than 50 Year 11 and 12 vis­ual arts stu­dents.

Paint­ings, draw­ings, sculp­tures, ce­ram­ics, electronics and tex­tile cre­ations are among the works on show un­til March 29.

The win­ner of the Over­all En­cour­age­ment Award was Ash­dale Sec­ondary Col­lege stu­dent Joanne Le for her mixed me­dia ex­hibit Jun­gle Asians.

There were two win­ners of the Res­i­dent En­cour­age­ment Award.
