Discover Fremantle's Realists
A fantastic new exhibition by local artists, entitled the Fremantle Realists Exhibition, will run at the Fremantle Arts Centre, in Fremantle, from Saturday 31st May until Thursday 17th July, 2014.

The Fremantle Realists Exhibition brings together the work of three very talented artists. Ray Beattie, Marcus Beilby and Ken Wadrop shared an art studio in High Street, Fremantle, during the 1970s and were well know for their artwork, capturing Western Australia's unique beauty.

This exhibition features paintings. prints and drawings of the world as these three artists saw it. See suburban and rural landscapes, brand new pieces, as well as a selection of work from the private collections of these popular artists.

Early work by Ray Beattie, Marcus Beilby and Ken Wadrop was part of the 1980 AGWA exhibition 'High Street Studio Realists', which toured the country and was displayed at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the National Gallery of Victoria. Their artwork has been included in many exhibitions, including exhibits at the Fremantle Arts Centre, during their years as artists.

Artwork by Ray Beattie, Marcus Beilby and Ken Wadrop, who are still working artists today, will give the viewer an insight into the world of realism in Western Australia.

Ken Wadrop and Marcus Beilby will be on hand at the Fremantle Arts Centre to guide a tour of the Fremantle Realists Exhibition with FAC curator Ric Spencer. This special event will take place on Sunday 1st June, 2014 between 2pm and 4pm.

The Fremantle Realists Exhibition is free to attend. The Fremantle Arts Centre is open seven days a week, between 10am and 5pm.
