The talent and creativity of more than 40 HSC Visual Art students on the Northern Beaches will be on display for the annual Express Yourself exhibition at the Manly Art Gallery & Museum (MAG&M) from 19 February until 28 March 2021.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan praised the excellent quality of artworks on show each year at the exhibition which include multi-media and digital works as well as sculpture, ceramics and drawings. 

“It’s wonderful to see the diversity of local talent on display at a local institution like MAG&M which continues to nurture and inspire new generations of artists. 

Express Yourself reflects the artistic strength of emerging young artists on the Northern Beaches as well as the quality of our schools,” Mayor Regan said. 

The winners of the $3,000 Manly Art Gallery & Museum Society Youth Art Award and $5,000 Theo Batten Bequest Youth Art Award will be announced on Friday 19 February. These two awards are granted annually to students featured in the exhibition.  

Artist statements will be displayed alongside the artworks describing the inspirations and influences that informed the works and the students’ creative journeys.  

Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favourite artwork in the KALOF People’s Choice Award which is announced at the end of the exhibition period. 

Express Yourself is also part of Art Month Sydney, March 2021. 

Exhibition: 19 February - Sunday 28 March 2021, 10am - 4pm daily (excluding Mondays)  

Teachers' preview: Friday 19 February, 5 - 6pm. Bookings essential.

Art Walk and Talk: Saturday 27 February, 3 – 4pm: Artists walk through the exhibition and discuss their works with the curator. Bookings essential via Council’s website
