Accomplished artist Garry Boase is presenting his latest exhibition, entitled 'Perth Places People' at the Moores Building this May.

The exhibition will open at 6pm on Friday 22nd of May, 2015, then run daily until Monday 1st of June, 2015. 'Perth Places People' is FREE to attend and all are welcome to come along and peruse the collection of works which celebrate Perth's beloved landmarks and places.

This project initially focused on well-known buildings and landscapes but soon extended to figures and portraits of Perth locals. Amongst the displayed paintings, you'll find Garry's unique take on Winthrop Hall, the chapel at Guildford Grammar, Mounts Bay Road winding around Mount Elisa towards the site of the old Swan Brewery, Fremantle Parade and a local jazz band.

Garry has lived in or near Perth most of his life and through this exhibition invites the public to look at familiar landmarks and places from another point of view. "These buildings and places that I've painted are as much part of me as is the smell of gum trees, the sound of magpies and the wide open river and sky. I wanted to make paintings about these things and this place, and share them with other people who belong to this city" Garry explains.

Garry has used a timeless post impressionist style to capture Perth's iconic structures, landmarks and vivd scenescapes.
