Live music makes its long-awaited return to Fremantle Arts Centre this August with Gallery Sessions.

This intimate concert series, performed up-close and stripped back in FAC’s Main Gallery and Pavlich Room, features a double bill of WA’s most talented songwriters each week.

These gigs are cosy – with small crowds and warm storytelling set against a beautiful backdrop of artworks from FAC’s upcoming exhibition Panacea. Audiences have the opportunity to take a guided curator’s tour of the exhibition before settling in for a cabaret-style evening of song.

FAC Director Jim Cathcart is eager for the Centre’s live music program to resume.

“Fremantle Arts Centre is all about connecting artists with audiences and nothing beats the experience of live music at FAC,” he said.

“There’s a huge appetite for gigs! Our audience is ready to see our talented local musicians in action, in person. We are really happy our doors are open again and we can get back to what we do.”

Gallery Sessions runs every Thursday in August.
