Aboriginal art is much sought after by many collectors and art enthusiasts. Aboriginal art has been available for a very long time, and in the last ten or so years has been promoted quite heavily, and thus fuelled a greater interest in this fascinating, and very different artwork.

The quality of this art is excellent with more and more emerging young artists coming on the scene and showing/selling their paintings.

1. Exhibition Opening: Revealed New and Emerging WA Aboriginal Artist
This exhibition is hosted by The Fremantle Arts Centre, 1 Finnerty Street, Fremantle, and will be held on 6th April, 2018 from 6.30 pm to 9.00 pm. Entry is free.

The Revealed Exhibition features works by more than 80 of the best new and emerging WA Aboriginal artists, showcasing the different and stunning state of contemporary Aboriginal art.



There will be paintings, prints, carvings, photography, textiles, video, weaving and more. This will be a fascinating and very interesting exhibition presenting the work of artists from remote areas, alongside those from regional centres, as well as from metropolitan Perth.

All works in the exhibition are for sale, and some of the artists who will be exhibiting include:

2. Revealed WA Aboriginal Art Market
This exhibition will be held at the Fremantle Arts Centre on 7th April from 10 am to 5 pm, and is also a free event.

Aboriginal art centres and independent Aboriginal artists from across the state will be selling original and affordable works at the Revealed WA Aboriginal Art Market.



This occurs just once a year, where you can buy art directly from up and coming and established Aboriginal artists, and this event is a favourite on the FAC calendar!

The artworks will start from just $50 and all profits from these sales will be returned to the artists and art centres, so this is a great opportunity to decorate your walls with quality paintings.

There will be a range of craft and artworks, including paintings, textiles, woven items, artefacts, clothing, ceramics, jewellery and more in the front garden of the Fremantle Arts Centre.
