The winner of FIPP-the Fremantle International Portrait Prize-was announced on Saturday night at the Moores Contemporary Art Gallery in Henry Street.

It is Titanium Man by Malcolm Peacock of Cheshire, United Kingdom. Titanium Man was the unanimous choice of the panel of three FIPP judges. Malcolm Peacock receives AU$8000 cash and trophy.

Peacock said about his photo ‘This Triathlete wanted a different type of action shot. “So we set up the photo shoot in his garden. We involved his mother, who took great delight in throwing buckets of water at him. The water was heated to start with but by the end of the shoot it was freezing cold!! Hence the intense expression on his face.”

FREMANTLE PHOTO PORTRAITS AWARDS

The Fremantle International Portrait Prize-FIPP– is on show from this weekend at the Moores Contemporary Art Gallery in Freo’s Henry Street.

I understand that there were more than 3,000 entries for the awards, so a huge task for the judges to decide on a winner, which will be announced at the invitation only opening on Saturday evening.

But one can already wander into the gallery space, as I did this morning and have a look at some 300 photos on the walls.

There are some excellent portraits on show, but this kind of post stamps exhibition of the work is not to my liking. There are far too many photos on show in my humble opinion and it looks overwhelming.

FANTASTIC FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE PRINT AWARD

Posted in art, city of fremantle, fremantle arts centre, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on September 23, 2019

 

 

After a very busy weekend I finally had the chance to go and see the FAC Print Award at the Fremantle Arts Centre and I recommend it highly.

It is one of the best FAC Print Awards I have seen in years and is well worth a visit.

I already mentioned on Thursday evening the winners so just want to mention my personal favourites in the great show.

I love Eva Fernadez’ Raven Family, Deanna Mitti’s Assimilated Museum Installation, Clyde McGill’s The Requiem Songs, and Judith Martinez Rorschach and the Sea.

Everyone will have their own favourite artwork in the show, so don’t miss it!

ARCHITECTURE COMMENDATION FOR ROUNDHOUSE FESTIVAL HUB

 

Hub commendation

 

THE HUB next to the Fremantle Roundhouse, created by Fremantle-based Harris Architects, was awarded a commendation at the recent WA architecture awards.

The Hub was created for the High Tide Biennale as the festival hub and has since become very popular for weddings on Arthur Head and school groups on excursions having their lunch break in it.

It is a delightful, light and open structure that mirrors the Roundhouse, so I am one of many who hope and wish that the City of Fremantle will allow The Hub to remain permanently on the Bathers Bay look out.

FREMANTLE BUSINESS WINNERS DESERVE RECOGNITION!

My sincere apologies to the Fremantle businesses and individuals who won an award at the Fremantle Business Awards 2017 for not having acknowledged your achievements on Freo’s View!

I have been trying to get a list of winners from the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce since Monday this week.

I emailed CEO Olwyn Williams on Monday and asked her again last night at Fremantle Council, but disappointingly I have not received any information from the FCOC to date.

Congratulations to all the winners and I am sorry I can’t mention you by name because that information is not available to me. ; >(

Posted in city of fremantle, development by freoview on November 10, 2015

The Planning Institute of Australia last night awarded the Fremantle White Gum Valley project the Best Planning Ideas-Small Project and Planning Minister’s Award.

The project is a collaboration between Landcorp, Freo’s CODA architects, URBIS and the City of Fremantle.

The judges said the development exemplifies a unique urban infill project through collaboration between a developer, local government and the community. It was praised for its ability to demonstrate the economic, environmental, and social benefits of sustainable development.
