Revealed Perth 2013

Diane Dawson, Roma Butler and our centre manager Claire are just back from their adventure in Perth! 

Diane was one of 35 artists selected to be exhibited as part of "Revealed - Emerging Aboriginal artists'  from Western Australia 2013". 

The showcase began on Friday 13th April with a public symposium including: a presentation by our friends at Warakurna Artists on their History Project; a heated debate on regulation and the art market’s future and an inspiring talk by Perth Artist, Sandra Hill. 

In the evening there was the opening of the Revealed exhibition at Gallery Central at Central Institute of Technology, Northbridge where Diane and Roma admired everyone's paintings and caught up with all their friends from far and wide. The exhibition goes till the 4th May so check it out if you haven't already!

On Saturday there was a one day market at the Perth Cultural Centre. A wonderful busy and creative vibe was created in the Urban Orchard with twenty Art Centre's from all over Western Australia displaying their varying works from painted mugs to bookmarks and bags, t-shirts ...and of course plenty of canvases.

On Monday and Tuesday Diane and Roma were hard a work in the creative workshops while Claire participated in the professional development program. 

It was a wonderful week meeting up with other art centres being inspired by all their work and feeling proud of ours. We came back full of ideas and bursting with energy!
