I recently returned from living in London so I am re-discovering Perth and its hidden nooks and crannies.
Event: -
Be inspired by original local art
Perth has no shortage of exhibitions these days but if you're looking for one that is inspiring and now an annual event, then you have to see this one.

Activ Artspace exhibition is hosted annually by WA's largest not for profit disability service provider Activ.

Launched in 2014, Activ Artspace is an exhibition which celebrates the abilities of Activ's artists by providing an opportunity to showcase their work in a free public exhibition. The exhibition is back again this year and features more original art pieces created by people living with disability.

Activ Artspace features a mix of original pieces across watercolour, oil, acrylic and for the first time this year, photography.

For 2015 the exhibition will play host to a flagship auction piece by WA Artist Roslyn Burns. A talented artist, Roslyn paints exclusively with her left foot whilst in her wheelchair. Her pieces have already been shown at exhibitions across WA.

You can see Roslyn's art and many more at the Activ Head Office in Wembley from Saturday, 9th May to Sunday, 17th May 2015. Opening hours are:

Monday: 10.00am 4.00pm
Tuesday: 10.00am 4.00pm
Wednesday: 10.00am 4.00pm
Thursday: 10.00am 4.00pm
Friday: 10.00am 4.00pm
Saturday: 10.00am 4.00pm
Sunday: 10.00am 2.00pm

If you would like to purchase an original artwork, a selection of pieces will be available for sale. The proceeds will go directly back to the artists.

There will also be around 10 awards handed out to the most deserving artwork during the exhibition.
