2018 Angelico Exhibition Prize Winners

Highlights from Angelico Exhibition 2018 Opening Night


The 25th Angelico Secondary Exhibition showcased the depth of talent that exists within Catholic schools and is open to all students from Years 7-12.  This year we received 169 entries with 31 schools entering from as far north as Broome and as far south as Busselton. The exquisite works were displayed from Monday 13 August to Friday 24th August with the unenviable task of judging occurring on Saturday 11th August.  The 2nd Primary Angelico Exhibition attracted 144 entries from 29 participating schools and contributed to a most successful exhibition with an exceptionally high quality of Primary artworks.  The exhibition ran from Monday 30 July and Friday 10 August.   This year saw the introduction of a Primary Viewing Evening, to encourage primary school participating students, families and friends to view the artworks after normal office hours.  Despite the inclement weather, many families took advantage of the opportunity and spent time viewing the artworks and then deliberating on their nomination for the People’s Choice Award.

On Tuesday 14th August, the award presentations ceremony began in the foyer of the Forrest Centre and guests were then escorted to the outdoor atrium at Rigby’s, where 13 Primary students and 24 Secondary students were presented with their awards.  The Most Reverend Bishop Don Sproxton,  Dr Debra Sayce, Acting Executive Director, Catholic Education Western Australia, sponsors - St John of God Health Care, Jacksons Drawing Supplies, Australian Catholic Superannuation & Retirement Fund, Catholic Development Fund, Caritas Australia,

Parents & Friends’ Federation of WA, the Somers Family, judges and invited guests enjoyed a successful evening.

This year’s display consisted of an exquisite array of paintings, portraiture, still life, graphic, digital pieces, sculptures and many other forms of interesting concepts of art.

Sincere thanks to the dedication of the Angelico Committee’s and the Catholic Arts Office Staff who tirelessly worked to ensure the smooth running of the Exhibition’s. Thanks also to the Student Ambassadors from Corpus Christi College, who gave of their time to welcome guests, and ensure the 350 guests were well catered for and entertained.
