The City of Fremantle is showing the 25under25 art show during National Youth Week. The exhibition is showing the works of 25 exciting young West Australian artists between the ages of 12 and 25.
The exhibition features a vast array of work, from painting, drawing and photography to installation and video works. While some artists have focused on an innovative approach to materials and technique, others have presented strong concepts and dynamic compositions.
25under25 opens at the Moores Building Contemporary Arts Centre on Friday 4 April, 6.00–8.00pm, with live music, mocktails and award presentations. All are welcome to attend this free event and celebrate the creative achievements of 25 of Western Australia’s most talented emerging artists.
There will also be a live performance by one of the 25 exhibiting artists, Kathleen Szalay Hoffmann, of her contemporary dance piece, Dear Fred, I need more romance. Kathleen will also be performing this piece during the opening event on Monday 7, Wednesday 9 and Friday 11 April at 3.00 pm.

THIS MESSAGE FROM CHRISTINE FROM THE CITY OF FREMANTLE:
I was wondering if you may be able to promote the last Summer Square Sounds event on your blog at all?
We’ve got the Big Old Bear and The Brow Horn Orchestra playing this Friday which will be fantastic live.
We will also have Mandala’s in the square which will be evolving temporary community art installations by REmida.
This is the new flyer highlighting our National Youth Week events and the last addition to Summer Square Sounds.
