FAM­ILY is a ma­jor theme for Ap­ple­cross res­i­dent Daniela Dlu­gocz’s art­work in the City of Melville’s An­nual Art Awards ex­hi­bi­tion.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will in­clude more than 260 art­works from es­tab­lished and emerg­ing WA artists and will be run at the City’s Civic Cen­tre from Septem­ber 8-16.

The Ger­man-born artist, who moved to Aus­tralia from the city of Braun­schweig 12 years ago af­ter re­ceiv­ing a schol­ar­ship, will have art­work fea­tur­ing her daugh­ter Celia in the ex­hi­bi­tion.

“I used to be re­ally into things like jelly fish but things have changed since I had chil­dren and my work has be­come a bit more per­sonal,” she said.

“My work was al­ways just one or two colours like black and white but this piece fea­tured more colours.

“I felt so con­nected to the piece. Celia is like a mini-ver­sion of my­self, so in­spi­ra­tional and so full of life.

“The ex­hi­bi­tion is a good op­por­tu­nity to show­case my work but ev­ery artist loves to win things.”
