I am pleased to let you know Fremantle Arts Centre re-opens to the public on Monday 15 June.
In the galleries we are presenting Revealed 2020: New and Emerging WA Aboriginal Artists, a fantastic exhibition with works from 120 artists from all over the state. This is the chance to see Revealed up close and in person, following the huge response when we took the show online after FAC was obliged to close in late March. Many works are still available for purchase, and with 100% of the proceeds going back to the artists and remote Aboriginal art centres, there is no better time to show your support. Also opening is Tim Leura Tjapaltjarri in WA: Hunter Dreaming, an exhibition of two major works from the 1970s by the celebrated NT Papunya Tula Anmatyer artist. Both exhibitions run until Sunday 26 July.
Our shop FOUND and reception also re-open on Monday 15 June, while the café and FAC’s beautiful grounds are already open. Meanwhile, FOUND online is open for business 24/7.
In relation to FAC’s courses, we will present a July Kids’ School Holiday Program, with a full Term 3 Adults’ Program to follow. The classes, dates and booking information will be announced as they become available.
Other family programs such as Kids’ Corner and Buster: It’s All About Play! will resume at a later date.
The Moores Building Gallery is tentatively scheduled to re-open Monday 29 June.
Mon 15 June – Tue 30 June: 10am–4pm, 7 days
Wed 1 July onwards: 10am–5pm, 7 days
We will, of course, be implementing all the necessary public health protocols and social distancing measures that have become common over the past few months.
I look forward to seeing you soon, back at FAC.
Director, Fremantle Arts Centre
