FREO MASTER GEORGE HAYNES SHOWS AT LINTON&KAY

Posted in art, fremantle, western australia by freoview on August 17, 2016

 

Artist George Haynes has been a well-known and highly-respected artist in Fremantle for as long as I can remember, and although he now lives in Spearwood we still call him a Freo artist.

Haynes has not exhibited in a commercial gallery for more than ten years, so his show at the Linton&Kay Galleries at 137 St George’s Terrace in Perth will no doubt attract many art lovers, and hopefully a lot of art buyers.

The show is on from August 22 to September 23, but if you are keen you can view the show on the gallery’s website and buy a work before the show is sold out.

There are abstracts and landscapes, so make sure to check it out!

“I was tempted to call this exhibition ‘Pictures of Paintings’; such a simple title. Because what I find I am doing is painting a picture of a painting seen, as it were, on a wall, and illuminated by an invented light, be it a beam, ray, or shaft, or glow. Some window-scapes, some abstract paintings, some landscape paintings. But as the last painting in the show is dependent on the first, I will call it Two Years of Painting and leave it at that. I can only hope you enjoy the work as I enjoyed painting it.” George Haynes.

FREMANTLE ART COLLECTION GALLERY LAUNCH

Posted in fremantle by freoview on May 18, 2012

The Fremantle Art Collection Gallery will be opened by Mayor Brad Pettitt at the Fremantle Art Centre this evening. It is good to see the collection finally getting a home and that we will be able to see some of the works from the largest municipal art collection in Western Australia.

They were still fine tuning the light when I walked in around lunch time.

Works by Kathleen O’Connor, George Haynes, Helen Smith, Jeremy Kirwan-Ward, Alex Spremberg and Jane Martin will be on display from tomorrow. Also check out the Shaun Tan exhibition in the hallway.

I love change when it is done purposefully and with consideration. FAC has shown that growth and change can be really good, and we now have a serious council art gallery in our City.

NEW HOME FOR FREO’S ART COLLECTION

Posted in fremantle by freoview on May 10, 2012

The extensive City of Fremantle art collection, the largest municipal art collection in the State, has finally found a new home and will move into the Fremantle Art Centre.

The City of Fremantle Art Collection Gallery will host exhibitions of works selected from the collection, which contains over 1,300 artworks by over 500 artists. Many of the artists are W.A. or Freo locals.

The first exhibition at the new gallery will be Everything Old Is New Again,  of recently donated 20th century paintings by Kathleen O’Connor.

Kathleen O’Connor was the third child of famous Fremantle engineer C.Y. O’Connor; and is one of Western Australia’s most respected modernist artists.

O’Connor’s paintings will be shown alongside iconic historical and contemporary works by Fremantle artists George Haynes, Jane Martin, Alex Spremberg, Jeremy Kirwan-Ward and Helen Smith.

Everything Old is New Again opens on Friday 18 May at 6.30pm, the same night as the much anticipated Shaun Tan exhibition Suburban Odyssey.

WOOLSTORIES ART PROJECT

Posted in fremantle by freoview on November 21, 2011

The Woolstories art project, on the ramshackle Marilyn New owned Woolstores in Fremantle, is taking shape. Artist George Haynes creation, the colourbond panels, have been fitted to the windows, and look like upmarket boarded windows now, while at ground level the first mural has been painted and looks pretty cool and colourful.

This coming weekend, November 26 and 27, should see a large group of people painting their creations on the walls, so come along and be inspired to be creative.

The painting in the photo was done this weekend, but I have no idea who did it, so let me know please.

BIG BONZA BAZAAR

Posted in fremantle by freoview on December 4, 2010

The annual BAZAAR at the Fremantle Arts Centre opened last evening with over 2000 visitors, well up on last year. It continues all weekend and is a great opportunity to stock up with Christmas gifts, as there is a large variety of arts, craft, jewellery, textiles, pottery, etc. One of my favourite stalls is always the one from Zinongo Gallery in Lefroy street, where owner Njalikwa Zongwe and his daughters greet you with a broad smile.

While at the arts centre have a look at the eclectic HOME OPEN exhibition, where well known local artists like Paul Uhlman, Jane Martin, George Haynes, Tony Jones, Janis Nedela, Harry Hummerston, Trevor Richards, Giles Hohnen, Amanda McHenry, Theo Koning, and others, show the artworks they have collected over many years.
