The City of Armadale's Outside the Frame Art Awards attracts some of Perth's best young artists.

Some of Perth’s best up-and-coming artists have been selected to have their work exhibited in the City of Armadale’s annual art exhibition.

Year 11 and 12 students from 17 high schools across Perth will exhibit their artwork at Armadale’s Outside the Frame Art Awards, one of Perth’s most thought-provoking art exhibitions for young artists.

The artworks include paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, textiles, digital media and mixed media.

Mayor Henry Zelones said the awards is a cultural asset to the area and fosters emerging young talent from the region.

“The city has remained committed to celebrating the creative talents of the younger generation and providing a platform where they can communicate current thoughts and concerns to a wider audience,” he said.

“I am pleased to see local schools are keen to showcase their student’s talent in the exhibition.

“I encourage everyone to come along and view the works of these incredibly talented young people and continue to support their achievements.

“There is bound to be something that will either inspire, move or speak to you in some way.”

Local schools Carey Baptist College, Cecil Andrews Senior High School, John Wollaston Anglican Community School and Kelmscott Senior High School will have students’ work on display.

Entrants will be in the running to win awards in each category, plus a local artist award and the Heron Park Smarter Choice Award for Excellence.

The school with the best collective works will win a $1000 cash prize.

The award will run from August 12 to 20 from 11am to 4pm at the Armadale District Hall.
