Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

On be­half of the Art­walk Freo host and guest artists, I write to ex­press our ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the pub­lic who vis­ited the AWF 2017 “Liv­ing Stu­dios” dur­ing our re­cent Fre­man­tle com­mu­nity event.

It was won­der­ful to see so many peo­ple en­joy­ing the glo­ri­ous weather while walk­ing, cy­cling, ac­quaint­ing them­selves with the area.

Most im­por­tantly, they took plea­sure from each other’s com­pany while im­mers­ing them­selves in the cre­ative di­ver­sity of the home stu­dios.

Lo­cal re­tail­ers were dis­cov­ered and roam­ing visi­tors were of­fered re­fresh­ments while they browsed, adding an­other di­men­sion to their Fre­man­tle ex­pe­ri­ence.

It is no small ef­fort pre­par­ing for such an event.

This year we counted more than 2000 visi­tors and are pleased to re­port that there was­not a dropped tis­sue or a bro­ken twig left be­hind. To our visi­tors – thank you for your grace and re­spect. To our spon­sors and the City of Fre­man­tle thank you for join­ing us on Art­walk Freo and to our art col­leagues and friends who gave up their week­end to as­sist – our heart­felt thanks.

We look for­ward to wel­com­ing you again with fresh ideas in 2019.
