DELIGHTFUL ABORIGINAL ART MARKET

Posted in aboriginal, art, city of fremantle, fremantle arts centre by freoview on April 9, 2017

There was a lot of interest for the REVEALED Aboriginal art market at the Fremantle Arts Centre on Saturday morning and rightly so, as there were many stunning artworks for sale.

There was a bit of buying frenzy which made a few people forget they were dealing with art as they disrespectfully stepped onto the canvasses that were displayed on the ground to try to find a bargain.

It is overall a lovely and colourful atmosphere though but I wished the music they played on the day was more traditional.

The cafe was pumping out coffee like a factory assembly line, so for them too it was a good day.

I love Aboriginal art and while it was hard to get a good look because of the big crowd it is a great showcase for indigenous art from some of the very remote communities, so I hope it will continue next year.

    it was great weather for day for cycling to cover a lot of ground as you get to see and hear what is happening in Freo so from someone who lives in the Jewel in the Crown I’m jealous that too much is happening south of the river….it’s time to change that

    The Aboriginal arts market as always was full of incredible talent and culture and once a meaningful and sustainable Aboriginal Cultural Centre is established somewhere nearby it will be forever on display and understood
