2021's Young People of Bayside Art Exhibition showcases over 100 young artists' interpretation of the theme ‘Embracing the Moment’.
The FReeZA Event Committee invited young artists to embrace reconnection, growth and evolving from recent global events. Young artists responded with artwork encapsulating the theme with works exploring social media, COVID and connection to nature and friends.
The artwork is proudly shown at the Bayside City Council Offices, 76 Royal Avenue Sandringham 3191, and we invite you to be amazed by our talented young artists.
Artwork will be displayed until 15 August. Visit our Youth Art page for further information.
Artwork can be collected from Monday 16 August until Tuesday 31 August during business hours.

Last year, we were delighted to share the brilliant responses of 133 young artists, aged 10-25 who live, study or play in Bayside to the theme "Wonderful World".
Their works incorporate resilience, climate change and connecting to new members of the community, using a mixture of digital drawings, artwork on skateboards, portraits, hand drawings and photography.
