York Town Hall 8 - 16 October, daily 10am-4pm

York - Art & Craft Awards 2017

York has become my favourite awards exhibition. After having had success in 2015 and 2016, can I get lucky for a third consecutive year? Three new sculptures can be seen at this event this year. A countryside Sunday drive combined with lunch and an exhibition visit in York might be a enjoyable change to your regular weekend routine. The York Art Society is curating this annual event and works really hard to make this exhibition a fabulous experience.

Duo-Exhibition Ellenbrook 2017



Hillarys based chainsaw artist and sculptor Ernst Schneider and Mandurah based painter Carmel Sayer, are teaming up to present an exhibition with a difference. Just as life is like a roller coaster with its ups and downs, twists and turns and often unforeseeable destinations, it will be your choice to scream or enjoy the ride. This also applies to this exhibition, our biggest to date, which combines cleverly arranged, unusual and distorted sculptures with compartmentalised, colourful and expressive paintings to create both unique vibrancy and harmony at ‘Life – Stages and Crossroads’.

All can be explored through workshops, artist talks and an exhibition at    The Gallery in Ellenbrook, 34 Main Street, 7. May -4. June. (10am – 2pm daily, 1pm – 5pm on weekends).

Both talented yet ‘contemporary thinking’ Perth artists will be available throughout the weekends of the exhibition and on the Opening on Sunday 7th May from 2pm- 4.30pm. Paula Silbert from Paula Silbert Art Consultancy will officially open the exhibition.

You can learn more about the artists on and .

Free artist talks will be held by Ernst Schneider on Saturday, 13. May, 1.30pm -2.30 pm,

and Carmel Sayer on Saturday 20. May, 1.30pm – 2.30pm.

You are invited to the opening, talks and workshops and will need to reserve your place by emailing Matt Sivyer, Executive Director Ellenbrook Arts, on  or  (08) 9297 9940.

York Art and Craft Awards

After having had some success by winning the Sculpture prize for Scarface and Highly commended for a set of Party People last year I am looking forward to entering again some new artwork in this event this year. York is a fascinating little country town and always worth the one hour trip at any given time of the year. You might as well combine it with a visit to the Town Hall where the exhibition is held. The York Art Society pride themselves to host this annual event and you can feel the love that goes into it. Looking forward to hearing from you.

City of Wanneroo Art Collection online

The City has published a collection of about 250 pieces of artwork on its website to view online, covering categories including ceramics, digital art, drawing, indigenous, painting, photography, sculpture and textiles.

It includes a substantial number of items by northern suburbs artists.

One of those pieces was my very first sculpture I entered in any competition or award. I was thrilled at the time to see my sculpture being purchased by the City of Wanneroo Art Society which has given me a huge amount of confidence and believe in my work.

Judges’ Comments:

It’s simplicity and honesty imbue this figure with a real presence that cannot be ignored.

Artist Carmel Wise  visited Unrestricted by Reality opening night:

"Had a fantastic evening at Kidago Arthouse at the opening of Unrestricted by Reality. Here is Black Swan Prize founder Tina Wilson and award winning artist Ernst Schneider hamming it up with one of Ernst's sculptures. Exhibition on one week only opened 10-4 daily . Fantastic work, really worth the trip!"
