Fremantle Arts Centre celebrates WA Aboriginal artists

Fremantle Arts Centre celebrates WA Aboriginal artists
April 13, 2019

Identified as the largest annual event on Western Australia's calendar for sharing and supporting emerging Aboriginal artists, Fremantle Arts Centre’s Revealed Exhibition which opens this weekend includes more than 120 new and emerging Western Australian Aboriginal artists.

Revealed showcases the diverse and vibrant state of contemporary Aboriginal art through a program of public talks, a seven-week long exhibition and the hugely popular art market.

Revealed is an initiative of the Western Australia Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Australian Government through the Indigenous Visual Arts Industry Support program.

Fremantle Arts Centre Director Jim Cathcart said this year was the largest Revealed to date with even more artists taking part, stating "the exhibition runs from 13th April to 1st June, and all of Fremantle Arts Centre’s galleries will come alive with paintings, prints, carvings, photography, textiles, video, weaving and more.

“Plus, all works in the exhibition are for sale, which is a fantastic way to celebrate and support our next generation of Aboriginal artists.”

Art enthusiasts can also buy original, affordable works from Aboriginal artists at the one-day-only Revealed WA Aboriginal Art Market being held today (Saturday 13th April).

The market attracts Aboriginal artists from all over the state, with many travelling vast distances to take part, and all profits from sales are returned to the artists and art centres.

Cathcart“Last year’s Revealed market was attended by more than 3000 people and generated over $420,000 for the art centres and artists who took part.

“This is a really significant event for the WA arts and I hope people will continue to support the great work of these artists at this year’s market.”

Works start from as little as $50, and include paintings, textiles, woven items, artefacts, clothing, ceramics and jewellery.
