Now Then Painting is a selection of paintings which highlight the significant focus painting has enjoyed in the Collection and WA arts practice over the last forty years. The exhibition includes new acquisitions and works acquired in the earliest days of FAC.

The Collection’s focus on Australian prints and works by Fremantle artists reflects the historical and enduring importance of the visual arts to Fremantle.
