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.

FAMILY TRAGEDY AFFECTS MANY IN FREMANTLE

Posted in fremantle, mental halth, murder by freoview on December 17, 2014

The stabbing death of Fremantle mother Joan Hendry on Monday night in Stevens Street, White Gum Valley is reverberating throughout the Fremantle community because it involves highly-regarded Freo personalities. Ms Hendry was allegedly stabbed by her 19 year old son Gabe Lang after she had tried to get help for her son’s mental health problems at the Alma Street clinic and Emergency Department of Fremantle Hospital.

Joan Hendry was the partner of REPLANTS owner Bruce Abbott and the former partner of Fibonacci Centre‘s Robby Lang with whom she had her children Gabe and Rosie. Bruce and Rosie were also hurt in the attack and went to hospital with stab wounds to the hands. Gabe Lang also stabbed himself and is in hospital, according to media reports. Forensic police was still at the house this morning and some flowers had been left on the footpath.

There was a silent wake at REPLANTS on Wray Avenue last night.

My heart goes out to all involved. The incident yet again shows that mental health problems can be higly unpredictable and that there needs to be after-hour care available for those who are concerned about relatives or friends.

TINY IS A BIG STORY ABOUT HOME

Posted in fremantle by freoview on September 30, 2014

Fremantle ECOBURBIA will be showing TINY at REPLANTS on Wray Avenue on Friday, October 3.

It is a doco about home, and how we find it. The film follows one couple’s attempt to build a “tiny house” from scratch, and profiles other families who have downsized their lives into homes smaller than the average parking space.

Through homes stripped down to their essentials, the film raises questions about good design, the nature of home, and the changing American Dream.

From 1970 to 2010, the average size of a new house in America has almost doubled. Yet in recent years, many are redefining their American Dream to focus on flexibility, financial freedom, and quality of life over quantity of space. These self-proclaimed “Tiny Housers” live in homes smaller than the average parking space, often built on wheels to bypass building codes and zoning laws. TINY takes us inside six of these homes stripped to their essentials, exploring the owners’ stories and the design innovations that make them work.

TINY is a coming-of-age story for a generation that is more connected, yet less tied-down than ever, and for a society redefining its priorities in the face of a changing financial and environmental climate. More than anything, TINY invites its viewers to dream big and imagine living small.

Doors open at 6.30pm for dinner and conversation. The meal is BYO. The movie will start at 7.30 (or when it is dark enough!) so we can have some discussion afterwards.

BUILD A HOME FROM HEMP

Posted in fremantle by freoview on July 29, 2014

Info from the Fremantle ECOBURBIA mob:

 A father’s search to find the healthiest building materials leads him to the completion of the nation’s first hemp house.

Hemp with lime is a non-toxic, energy-efficient, mildew, fire and pest resistant building material.

The drawback — although research is legal in some states, hemp remains off-limits to almost all U.S. farmers.  Industrial hemp is a non-psychoactive plant, grown in 31 other countries that makes 1,000′s of sustainable products and offers solutions for global warming, nutrition, poverty and deforestation. 



In the U.S., hemp could be a money-making crop for farmers and create jobs. But why can’t Americans grow it?



BRINGING IT HOME tells the story of hemp: past, present and future and a global industry that includes textiles, building materials, food products, bio-plastics, auto parts and more.

There will be a speaker and time for questions and discussion about the use of hemp in WA after the movie.

This movie will be held at Replants, 96 Wray Avenue this Friday August 1. Doors will open at 6.30pm for dinner and conversation. The meal is BYO. The movie will start at 7.30 so we can have some discussion afterwards. Come prepared to share your thoughts. The venue is not heated or cooled so please dress appropriately and bring doonas etc
