On trail of great art

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

THE streets of Su­bi­aco have come alive, thanks to the work of 10 pro­fes­sional artists who are show­cas­ing their work in shop win­dows around the city cen­tre.

Called Su­biartco, artists have col­lab­o­rated with QUBE de­vel­op­ers and lo­cal busi­nesses to brighten up the City of Su­bi­aco.

“Our aim is to of­fer the pub­lic a more per­sonal in­ter­ac­tion with artists, with the op­por­tu­nity to talk to in­di­vid­ual artists about their work, process and tech­niques, and see us at work in our stu­dio,” fea­tured artist Narelle Manser-smith said.

Su­bi­aco coun­cil­lor Stephanie Stroud of­fi­cially opened the ex­hi­bi­tion at a VIP launch last month, where 10 per cent of sales from the night went to St John of God Hospi­tal.

The main stu­dio and gallery space is at 24/3 Wex­ford Street (cor­ner of Sheen Street) Su­bi­aco, and is open Thurs­days to Satur­days, 11am to 5pm, with an ad­di­tional four gallery spa­ces on Sheen and Wex­ford Streets.

“(The gal­leries) will pro­vide passers-by with the op­por­tu­nity to do some win­dow shop­ping 24 hours a day as the spa­ces are lit up as bea­cons of colour and life,” Ms Manser-smith said.

“It’s like a mini art trail through the streets of Su­bi­aco.”

Con­tact de­tails are avail­able at each gallery, so in­ter­ested buy­ers can se­cure a favourite piece of lo­cal art­work.

Two artists are also of­fer­ing art work­shops at one of the Wex­ford Street spa­ces.
