A huge mural art work of a fully-clothed man swimming on his back is being created in Fremantle’s Bannister street, next to the Hougoumont hotel, and opposite the Attic cafe. Go and have a look!

I don’t know who the artist is but would be happy to give him/her credit, so let me now please.

VOLUNTEER AT SCULPTURE AT BATHERS!

 

S@B

 

I am very happy that the SCULPTURE AT BATHERS exhibition will be on again at Fremantle’s inner city beach in February this year. The Bathers Beach event has proven to be very popular and is a great showcase for Western Australian artists, where the artworks sell pretty well.

Sculpture at Bathers is looking for volunteers to guide visitors and hand out information, etc. and I will most certainly sign up to do a couple of days a week for that. It will be relaxing fun!

So if you love art, the beach, and making people feel welcome, contact the organisers via email: volunteer@sculptureatbathers.com.au

The show is on from February 15 to March 2, 2020.

A couple of arty photos I took late on Friday afternoon at Bathers Beach. I am always on the look for different views and angles of beautiful Fremantle and had not discovered the interesting reflections at the Bathers Beach House before.

JELLYFISH MESSAGE AT FREMANTLE MARKETS

Posted in art, city of fremantle, environment, fremantle markets, plastic, Uncategorized by freoview on January 17, 2020

 

 

BLOOM is an interesting exhibition by primary school students at the Fremantle Markets.

A lot of jellyfish are hanging down from the ceiling, and they have been created by using recycled plastics.

The idea is to create more awareness about the reuse and recycling of single-use plastics.

Go and have a look and check out all the things on offer!

FREO NEW ART MURAL WITH A VIEW

Posted in art, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on January 13, 2020

 

 

Another art mural is being created in Fremantle at the BP fuel station on Queen Victoria Street.

The three-dimensional artwork on two walls is a view from Monument Hill and looks great.

By the way, this was the first time I refueled my car since I moved back to the inner city on October 25. It means you can now call me Walkalotmore. ; >)

BLUE POLES AT FREO MOORES GALLERY

Posted in art, city of fremantle, exhibition, Uncategorized by freoview on January 10, 2020

 

Blue Poles

Blue Poles original

 

Four female artists did get inspired by the very expensive Blue Poles painting by Jackson Pollock, which is in the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.

Louise Allerton, Renee Farrant, Rachel Mordy and Jill O’Meehan are exhibiting their Blue Poles in the Moores Contemporary Art Gallery in Henry Street in Fremantle. It opens at 6pm this evening.

There are some large paintings and a lot of small ones, but they were still putting the show together this morning, so go see for yourself.

I took a photo of the plastic installation, because it looks just a wee little bit like Pollock’s original. I am publishing both of them so you can compare. ; >)
