The City of Fremantle Art Collection is the largest municipal art collection in Western Australia.

In order to share the rich and diverse array of artworks held by the City, we’re inviting you to join us for An Evening with the Collection – a quarterly night of conversation hosted by André Lipscombe, the Collection’s Curator.

Glazed Bodies

Ceramics and pottery in particular, was the mainstay of the FAC Learning and Artist in Residence (AIR) programs after 1975. This focus was in response to the groundswell of international and local interest in the crafts, prompting investment of resources into the ceramics studio, growing the number of pottery exhibitions conducted each year and increasing the participation of craftspeople in the FAC AIR and Learning programs.

Glazed Bodies tracks the growth of the ceramics Learning and Artist in Residence program through the lens of the City of Fremantle Art Collection.

Hosted by Curator Andre Lipscombe with special guests – to be announced soon.
