THE City of Can­ning’s an­nual art awards ex­hi­bi­tion is back with a bang for an­other year.

Fea­tur­ing works from over 180 artists across Perth, the eight-day ex­hi­bi­tion show­cases a mul­ti­tude of medi­ums, in­clud­ing paint­ing, draw­ing, 3D and sculp­ture, mixed me­dia and pho­tog­ra­phy.

Can­ning Arts Group pres­i­dent Tr­ish Ray’s mixed me­dia piece For You is just one of the art­works on show.

She took up the art only a cou­ple of years ago and said her love of dogs and a spon­ta­neous ap­proach to art in­spired her work.

“I did that in a work­shop and it was a 3D mixed me­dia piece,” she said.

“We were us­ing all th­ese dif­fer­ent medi­ums and tech­niques I hadn’t used be­fore and in all hon­esty it just evolved.

“I did the back­ground first, then I did the pa­per bit and started fill­ing the gaps to give it more di­men­sion with pas­tels.

“I did a bit of acrylics as well. When I did the back­ground with the inks, I tried to work with the pat­terns in that. Some artists are very planned, but it’s not my style.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion kicked off with a cock­tail gala to an­nounce the award win­ner for the adult and youth cat­e­gories on Fri­day.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be on dis­play at the City of Can­ning Civic and Ad­min­is­tra­tion Cen­tre be­tween 10am and 3pm from August 11 to 19.

En­try is free.
