TON OF REASONS TO SEE EXHIBITION
THERE are more than 100 reasons to attend this year’s Hale Fine Art exhibition.
East Fremantle’s Dale Frances and Fremantle’s Tom Freeman will join more than 100 artists from around the state who will display their paintings, mixed media, jewellery, ceramics and sculptures at the popular annual exhibition.
Frances, primarily a clay work artist, said she first took part in the exhibition a couple of years ago and enjoyed it so much she had been back every year since.
“I have cast three identical bowls, and three sets of four identical smaller vessels, all in porcelain,” she said.
“Then, using the erosion or water etching process, I have formed two or three layers into the clay, creating multiple levels of interest within the surface.
“It’s really vital that events like this are continued because it is getting more and more difficult for Perth’s amazing pool of talent to gain exposure, with the continuing closing of galleries and the influx of mass produced ‘art’ from abroad.
“People will have the opportunity to purchase affordable artwork which is curated both to a high standard and with a wonderful variety so there’s something for everyone.”
The Hale Fine Art Show is on at Hale School in Wembley Downs from July 29 to 31.
