SCULPTURE AT BATHERS BACK IN FEBRUARY

Posted in art, bathers beach, city of fremantle, culture, sculpture@bathers, Uncategorized by freoview on October 9, 2019

 

 

I have reported this previously a couple of monts ago, but it is getting closer to SCULPTURE AT BATHERS, so here the media release from the City of Fremantle.

The popular Sculpture at Bathers exhibition will return to Bathers Beach in February with support from the City of Fremantle.

The biennial exhibition, which commenced in 2013, will present over 90 works by emerging and recognised West Australian sculptors. 

Local artist and Sculpture at Bathers committee member Tony Pankiw has exhibited works in the two previous editions in 2015 and 2017. 

He said the exhibition was both a great opportunity for artists to showcase their creations and a chance for the public to enjoy sculpture in a dynamic coastal setting.

“This is really a great space for it, and all those artists that don’t get a chance to show very often can come down here and have a different experience in a really public space,” Mr Pankiw said.

“That’s the great part of it because it takes the art out of the studio, puts it into the open where it should be and brings so many people down to have a look.

“It’s a very expensive event to run so the sponsorship we receive from the City of Fremantle provides a significant boost and enables us to develop more opportunities. We can be extraordinary now.”

Mr Pankiw’s work ‘Ship of Stories’, which was created in collaboration with artist Sue Codee, was acquired by the City of Fremantle from the 2015 exhibition and is now a popular fixture at Arthur Head.

Another work that featured in the 2017 edition of Sculpture at Bathers, the magnificent bronze sculpture ‘Chimera’ by WA artist Sue Flavell, has been loaned to the City of Fremantle by a generous art collector and is now situated in Pioneer Park opposite the Fremantle Station.

The 2020 Sculpture at Bathers exhibition will feature sculptures on the beach, lining the timber boardwalks, along the winding paths and in the bushland below the limestone cliffs of Arthur Head. Smaller and more intimate works will also be display inside the historic galleries of Kidogo Arthouse.

Sculpture at Bathers will run from 15 February until 2 March 2020.

HOTTEST AUGUST DAY EVER COMING UP

Get ready for a hot one! The forecast is for 28 degrees celsius tomorrow and that would mean the hottest day ever recorded in August in Fremantle. But it won’t last long with rain returning on Thursday for another five or so wet days ahead.

While I was shooting SAB-Sunset at Bathers a team from SAB-Sculpture at Bathers was having a meeting and preparing for the next great SAB show in January.

Sculpture@Bathers

 

I am delighted that the great SCULPTURE AT BATHERS exhibition will be back on next year with the organisers calling for entries.

The show at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach attracted thousands of people in the past and is a great showcase of Western Australian 3D art.

FIRE ENDS BATHERS BEACH SCULPTURE SHOW

Posted in aboriginal, culture, fremantle, sculpture@bathers by freoview on March 12, 2017

 

Local Noongar people created a moving end to the Fremantle Sculpture@Bathers show at Bathers Beach by setting fire at sunset to the Jarrah tree installation by Replants artist Bruce Abbott.

The heavy afternoon rain made the trees too wet to go up in blazing glory, but there was a stunning sunset, a rainbow and a lot of people interested in Noongar culture.

There was also a celebration of the Labor election win and the protection of the Beeliar Wetlands.

SCULPTURE@BATHERS FLAMING FINALE

Posted in art, bathers beach, fremantle, sculpture@bathers by freoview on March 11, 2017

 

It finally is election day. I am so happy the pathetic campaign of buying voters with empty promises is over and the likelihood of a change in government.

It is also the last two days of the Fremantle  Sculpture@Bathers show, so go and see the sculptures by 85 Western Australian artists, like the beautiful stone work above by J Shed artist Jina Lee.

S@B ends with a flaming finale on Sunday from 6 pm when Replants artist Bruce Abbott sets fire to the 35 jarrah trees on Bathers Beach.

The Cottesloe Sculptures by the Sea is still on for another week and has many Freo artists represented, so check that out as well.

COTTESLOE SCULPTURES BY THE SEA

Posted in art, cottesloe, fremantle, sculpture@bathers, sculptures by the sea by freoview on March 4, 2017

 

The annual Cottesloe Sculptures by the Sea opened on Friday and will be on for two weeks, so make sure to ride, walk, drive or train it up the coast on the long weekend.

This is a show by Australian and international artists that compliments the all Western Australian Sculpture@Bathers in Fremantle well.

We should consider ourselves lucky to have two outstanding beach art shows at the same time.

SCULPTURE@BATHERS SHOW ON IN FREMANTLE

Posted in art, arthur head, bathers beach, fremantle, sculpture@bathers by freoview on February 25, 2017

 

The Fremantle SCULPTURE@BATHERS exhibition is on at Bathers Beach for the next two weeks, so make sure to go and have a look.

It is the showcase for 85 Western Australian artists, so support our local creatives.

I specifically liked the sensual stone works by Jina Lee and Pascal Proteau, the colourful wind powered work on the groyne by Cameron Robbins and the forrest on the beach by Bruce Abbott.

Antony Muia is very much his own artist and the two pillars of coloured rocks and a pile of rocks inside a fenced-off space is fascinating, as are Muia’s challenging but beautiful paintings and prints he has been creating for years.

Peter Knight’s work is one of his best, and I always love the art Peter Dailey creates.

Also in my top list are the artworks by Ben Jones, Gordon Mitchell, Bjorn Rainer Adamson, Susan Flavell and Greg James.

Everyone will have their own favourites, so head for Bathers Beach!
