Support for art space at Kwinana
Fremantle Ports has sponsored the development of a new art space at Koorliny Arts Centre Kwinana and the space is about to host its first exhibition.
The Freedom Art Exhibition will be in the new Fremantle Ports Exhibition Zone from 30 January 30 to 12 February.
Featuring innovative and thought-provoking artworks by renowned artists, including Richard Bristow, Gillian Peebles and Grahame Readwin, the exhibition will be launched by Deputy Premier Roger Cook at an awards ceremony.
The opening of the exhibition zone at the Koorliny Arts Centre Kwinana is a joint project with Fremantle Ports.
Fremantle Ports Corporate and Community Relations manager Neil Stanbury said Fremantle Ports was proud to be part of the Freedom Art Exhibition, having been part of the community for over 120 years.
“Fremantle Ports has built a strong reputation for being a trusted partner supporting projects and activities such as this art space in our catchment communities of Fremantle, Cockburn, Kwinana, Rockingham and surrounding areas,” he said.
Last financial year, Fremantle Ports supported 50 community programs that align with their four key areas of focus - community enrichment, education, environmental leadership and arts and culture.
Bendigo Bank Kwinana will be sponsoring one of the major award categories.
Koorliny Arts Centre general manager Kate McIntosh invited the community to visit the exhibition and see what the Centre has to offer.
“Drop in for a cuppa, vote for the People’s Choice Award, and have a look around,” she said.
The Freedom Art Exhibition is open to the public from 10am-4pm.
Selected artworks are for sale and may be viewed in person or via the Centre’s website.
The exhibition is the first of future exhibitions designed to inspire, define and support local, talented artists while nurturing, educating and providing enjoyment of the arts and culture in the community.
