SHOTS

 

If you happen to be in Fremantle’s historic West End go and see the good photo exhibition SHOTS in the Moores building gallery in Henry Street.

SHOTS is an open category show for online photographers and there are some very good landscape and wildlife photos, and others. The poster above does not do justice to the quality of the work, so go and see it for yourself.

The show opened on Friday and will be on until November 23.

ART ABOUT MINING AND RESOURCES

Posted in art, city of fremantle, culture, exhibition, mining, Uncategorized by freoview on April 18, 2018

 

 

 

I love the cavernous former warehouse space of PS Art Space in Pakenham Street. One can really contemplate there while watching art shows and it would be a fantastic space for meditation.

The space is ideally suited to making exhibitions into installations, as the present show does well.

The Built to last exhibition by Jennifer Garland at Fremantle’s PS ART SPACE is an investigation of once prosperous places and the extraction of commodities. The legacy of history is explored in a mixed-media installation inspired by archival records, satellite imagery, and scientific research. Now in decline, these places are filled with unsettling omens which offer projections of possible futures. The exhibition reimagines histories and makes connections across time in order to examine nature in an era defined by its absence.

Experimental processes of transformation have been used which introduce chance elements and convey a sense of chaos. This involves techniques utilizing oxidisation, melting and distortion. Industrial materials including hi vis safety equipment also contribute to an undercurrent of danger. 

The show runs till May 11 and is open Tuesday-Friday from 10am to 4pm and Saturdays from 10am to 2 pm.

WELCOME TO PARADISE ABORIGINAL ART SHOW

Fremantle’s great and long-established Aboriginal art gallery Japingka in High Street in the West End of town is opening a new exhibition this coming Friday March 23 by artists from the Ampilatwatja community.

Welcome to Paradise reveals the traditional country of Alyawarr people of Central Australia. The community of Ampilatwatja is north-east from Alice Springs, and its art centre has operated there since 1999.

The paintings focus on the landscapes of locations that form the ancestral grounds of the people. Many artists depict Arreth, the bush medicine plants traditionally harvested by the people. The reflections of the artists and the on-going ties to the land are seen in the paintings, which are formed by the use of tiny dots that create the features of the country.

Traditional knowledge is viewed through the lens of appropriate standing of the individual, with stories reserved for the initiated in customary law, and stories appropriate for wider exposure to the outside world. The artists are bound by these laws and so can reveal some aspects of their country and customs, while with-holding other aspects as part of the restricted knowledge of their country.

These beautiful landscape images of Alyawarr country are on view at Japingka Gallery from 23 March until 16 May 2018.

BITCHES BREW NEW FREO ART SPACE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, exhibition, retail,, Uncategorized by freoview on February 12, 2018

 

Bitches Brew

 

Long established Fremantle picture framers BITCHES BREW is expanding and have taken over the former space of the Adam Monk landscape photography gallery at 62 High Street.

Adam Monk decided to get out of  shop retail and will continue as an on-line business only. Check out his website https://www.adammonk.com

Bitches Brew will make the large space in front of their framing business available for rent as a gallery space for artists and other interests.

It is a beautiful space with lots of foot traffic passing by, so great to get attention from shoppers, tourists, art buyers and Notre Dame university staff and students.

If you want to book the space call 9430 5292 and talk to the delightful Ruth or Nigel Goodman at Bitches Brew, or just visit the gallery Tuesday to Saturday and have a chat with them.

For all your framing business Bitches Brew will continue as usual, as they have done in Freo for 30 years.
