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.
