Don’t miss today’s REVEALED W.A. Aboriginal Art Market at the Fremantle Arts Centre!

It is your chance to connect with indigenous artist from all over Western Australia from some of the most remote parts of our state. Twenty two Aboriginal art centres are represented and this is your chance to meet the artists face to face.

They are here from the Kimberley, Pilbara, Western Desert, Goldfields, Great Southern, Mid-West and metropolitan areas.

Artworks for as little as $ 50,00 will be for sale and many more that will deservedly cost a whole lot more because there is some outstanding art on display.

There is no gallery commission on the works, which means that 100% of the profits from the sales will go direct to the artists.

The art market is on from 10 am to 4 pm, so go support our indigenous artists, have a chat with them and learn more about our amazing Aboriginal history and art.

Fremantle Japingka Gallery will be showing two new exhibitions from Friday April 4 in their High Street premises. Desert Song will bring together 50 paintings by signficant women artists from the Western and Central Desert.

Also on show is The Pike Family, an exhibition of works by the late Jimmy Pike‘s brother Edgar Pike and Edgar’s daughter Francine Steele. This will be a show of paintings, silkscreen prints, etchings and silk scarves.

The great Jimmy Pike made Japingka the well-respected Aboriginal Gallery it has become, so it is good to see the gallery’s long association with the Pike family.
