Freo's View


Posted in art, arthur head, culture, fremantle, j shed, JINA LEE by freoview on October 30, 2016

I rarely post photos of exhibition openings but will make an exception for the Stone Dreaming show by Jina Lee at the Greg James Sculpture Gallery in J Shed at Bathers Beach because this is a very special location and Jina is a very special person and outstanding artist.

Last night showed what a perfect space this is for art exhibitions and other art related events and that a small cafe on the side could well attract a lot of people.

Let’s hope the City of Fremantle and Sunset Events see the light and realise this is not an appropriate location for a tavern and outdoor music venue, as the WAPC has already ruled.

An art related community space is perfect and Greg James announced he has just secured an exhibition in November with the women who won this year’s Australian Photography Portrait Prize.

    An almost ethereal space and a perfect setting for Jina Lee’s sensuous sculptures which tempted visitors to experience by touch the beauty she has created. Truly beautiful works and a truly beautiful person. Congratulations to ‘Gerg’ and everyone in J Shed for facilitating and supporting this exhibition to showcase her work and the magnificent ambience of Unit 1.

    A perfect space – a perfect use of the space and so much more in keeping with the Bathers’ Beach Art Precinct aims.

    Enjoy also the other artists’ works on display 🙂

    We look forward to Elizabeth Looker’s exhibition in November.
