A leaf-inspired pendant light created by incoming UniSA student Mikayla Stewart has won the prestigious Poster Award at this year’s SACE Art Show.
Mikayla, who completed the artwork during her Year 12 studies at Brighton Secondary School, will start a Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) at UniSA next year.
The pendant light will feature on the 2018 poster used to promote the annual SACE Art Show, which showcases the creative talent of emerging artists who have recently completed Year 12 in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Announcing the SACE Art Show award winners, Education and Child Development Minister Susan Close says that based on the 148 art and design works on display, the exhibitors have bright futures ahead of them.
“It is inspiring to see young people conceive and make works of art and design, exploring skills with media, materials and technologies, and develop their own personal flair,” she says.
UniSA sponsored the Enterprising Artist Award, which was won by St John’s Grammar graduate Soraya Duke for her painting titled Kde Domov Můj?. UniSA Program Director of the Bachelor of Visual Arts, Dr Andrew Welch, says the University is proud to support the SACE Art Show.
