If you are like us and leave things until the last minute, you still have until tomorrow night to check out the very cool artworks of High Tide 17. You can get involved and design your own nautical flags with messages fit for 2100 or become a citizen of the Commonwealth of New Bayswater with your own passport, a fun little island set up by Jessee Lee Johns in the flooded Princess Chambers’ basement (4-6pm today and tomorrow).
A new mural has popped up at Stevens Reserve. Very clever and great talent by whoever is behind Artists Anonymous.
The band Pond, who are comprised of half members of Tame Impala, are in Fremantle this September to play a show at a great venue… Fremantle Prison. Pond have officially been found guilty… of making some of most killer tracks to have come out of the last few years.
We went to The Attic for tacos last weekend and we think you should check it out as well. Banister Street is just off the main strip and it’s worth taking those few extra steps towards the West End. Most of you will already have had lunch and breakfast there and now you can eat tacos. The venue is also licensed so you can have a beer or a glass of wine with your meal.
Fremantle based ceramic artist Simone Nabholz of Winterwares has launched a crowd funding campaign to help her finance a larger kiln for her studio.
Simone, who left her office job to pursue a new, creative direction in her life, has steadily grown her practice over the past two years.
We’ve been waiting for the sun to come out to take some photos of this and we’re glad we waited. How can you not smile when you see this as you drive into Fremantle.
Love Freo’s new favourite lunch spot is slightly hidden, but once you’ve been there you’ll return for sure. Leake Street Cafeteria is located in a narrow courtyard, which – with its metal staircase – reminds of a bit of New York. You enter the courtyard through the ‘Kakulas Sisters’ shop, just walk to the end of the shop and you’ll see where to go.
An amazing weekend of artistic talent! If you missed it check out the work around and on the North Fremantle Rail Bridge, magic! Well done Sherrie and all involved.
Curated by Sherrie Wilson Projects, Underline set out to revive the pillars of the North Fremantle Rail Bridge with a splash of colour from six local artists, accompanied by Italy’s Nemco. The project featured an all-star lineup of Perth’s favourite visual talents including Kyle Hughes-Odgers, Amok Island, Fecks, Ayres, Jessee Lee Johns (whose work you might know by the moniker Hosae), Ayres and Nemco. The project was funded by the City of Fremantle and sponsored by The Butcher Shop and Old Bridge Cellars.
