MARGARET RIVER COMES TO FREMANTLE
It’s going to be a warm day this Sunday so why not head out to Bathers Beach for a few hours of culture and great art.
The Margaret River Gallery has moved to Fremantle’s Kidogo Arthouse at Bathers Beach to showcase the talents of artists from the south west.
All artists showing are exclusively with the Margaret River Gallery and have no representation in Fremantle or Perth, so this is a rare opportunity for city people to view works from the south west creatives. Mediums include painting, watercolour, ceramics, photography, sculpture and jewellery, musical instruments and light boxes.
Alice Linford Forte- a young Margaret River artist, is represented in her fourth show with the gallery- her previous shows a sellout. Troy Barbital – graphic artist and artist in diverse mediums, Shem Spina – works on paper.
Martine Perret – photography – Martine worked for the united nations before settling recently in Margaret River. Martine is a winner in the Kalgoorlie Art Prize and finalist in many other prestigious art prizes.
Anthony and Kate Debbo – an artist couple with their own ideas, Anthony creates walls sculptures from reclaimed jarrah from the south west, whilst Kate is an abstract painter exploring colour and form.
Melissa Boughey – an artist from the deeper south explores the landscape with her incredible illustrative style in mixed media on canvas or paper. Chris Bellamy – and her love of the forest. Chris paints from her childhood memories of the mystery and intrigue of the forests in south west WA.
Sculptors include Leslie Whitham, Di West and Fleur Marron and Len Zuks.
The show is on until 23 November 2016. Also on is the J Shed Open Day on today!
