Josh’s eye for design lands photography prize
Year 12 design-photography student Josh Blakiston edged out students from across the state to win a prize for his photographic work last week. The photograph is part of a new exhibition currently on display at the Central Institute of Technology (formerly Central TAFE).
Christ Church had two students’ work selected for the new exhibition, titled MetaMORPHosis, including another photograph by Year 12 student Sam Watson. The exhibition, on display in the Gallery Central until this Saturday (27 August), aims to showcase excellence and originality by senior secondary school students in art and design studies.
Josh, who is also the School’s Art Captain, won the Award for Excellence in Photography for his work titled Fool’s Gold. He was presented with his prize at the exhibition’s opening at the Northbridge gallery last Monday.
Head of Art Pam Yordanoff said the Art Department was incredibly proud of Josh and Sam, who are taught by Miss Anna Cornell. She said the exhibition not only promoted excellence and originality in WA art and design students, it also reflected the shift, or metamorphosis, from students to artists and designers.
The exhibition is open to the public from Monday to Friday, 10.00am to 4.45pm; and Saturday 12noon to 4.00pm at 12 Aberdeen Street, Northbridge.
