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.

Fremantle J Shed sculptor Greg James has created these lovely ducks and they are out and about on the grass at J Shed, so take the kids for a look, and also have a look inside at all the art displayed in the gallery.

STINKING HOT BUT BEAUTIFUL FREO

Summer has really started with a bang, and is now officially the hottest start of December since the recording of daily temperatures started.

Friday was a real stinker with the seabreeze never arriving, so people were out and about in Fremantle.

I don’t recall ever having seen so many people watching the sunset at Bathers Beach.

caught!

back view

 

Two rather different photos of J Shed sculptor Greg James‘ artwork in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour. Workers who are repairing the jetty have caught one of the bronze fisherman, while the Bathers Beach House looks different when taken through the massive legs of the big sentinel.

The stolen Bella sculpture by Greg James still has not been found.

Twin Fin

 

A new Fish&Chips outlet has opened at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach. TWIN FIN has taken over the site where Sweetlips used to be, so make sure to give it a try and support a new small business in town.

NEW LIGHTS AT BATHERS BEACH

Four tall new lights have been installed along the Fremantle Bathers Beach dune path to replace the small solar lights that were constantly vandalised by brainless idiots.

The new lights will flood the area and will make it a bit safer at night as well one hopes.

Now all beach goers are hoping for the City of Fremantle to clean up the inner city beach more often and remove all the smelly seaweed from it.
