Celebrating Western Australia’s culture and local artists

The popular Sculpture at Bathers art exhibition is returning to Fremantle's Bathers Beach Art precinct in 2020 from Saturday, 15 February to Monday, 2 March. Sculpture at Bathers is an interactive art exhibition located inside Kidogo Arthouse and outside along the Bathers Beach precinct. It was established in 2013 with a Western Australian theme and has been devoted to promoting WA art, culture and local artists ever since. After successful shows in 2013, 2015 and 2017, Sculpture at Bathers has a lot planned for 2020.

There will be over 80 sculptures and interactive works on display inside Kidogo Arthouse and outside along the Bathers Beach precinct set up on the boardwalks, paths, grassed areas and near the ocean. Sculpture at Bathers is a highly anticipated and important art exhibition in Western Australia. The Bathers Beach Art Precinct is a historically significant site with a rich cultural history and the Kidogo Arthouse is a heritage-listed building.
