Description

The Aboriginal Art Gallery, located in Kings Park overlooking the Swan River and the City of Perth, was established first in Hay Street, Perth in 1992, as a venue to exhibit the art of Western Australian Indigenous artists.

The Gallery has been at its present location for the past 15 years. This Kings Park location offers a premium location that encourages appreciation of Aboriginal culture, their contribution to Australian history, family kinship and respect for the land.

The Aboriginal Art Gallery gives visitors the opportunity to meet and talk to Aboriginal artists and observe them as they work, listen to their stories unfold in music and dance performances from some of Western Australia's leading Aboriginal artists. Visitors to the gallery, both national and international, have the opportunity to be a part of the reconciliation between the original inhabitants of Australia and the people who have made this country their home over the past 200 years.

Art is central to Aboriginal culture. In a culture with no written language, it was used to record the beliefs and stories from the Dreaming and to pass these on to each successive generation. "Aboriginal culture represented through art has been dated at over 40,000 years old."

Aboriginal art, while fulfilling its earlier role is now also being used by artists to express and describe the contemporary issues impacting on their lives.

This has expanded the boundaries of Aboriginal Art, from works traditionally rendered on rock, bark and sand using natural ochre, to works using oils, watercolour and acrylic paints, etchings, gauche, collage and solvent transfer prints.

The gallery's reputation is substantially recognised throughout the Aboriginal community and amongst collectors of fine Indigenous art around the world.

The curatorial and management staff of the gallery has extensive knowledge of Western Australian Indigenous art and have expanded the gallery's interest to include the Central Desert region of Utopia. We invite you to experience a journey through Aboriginal art with a variety of innovative, contemporary and traditional Aboriginal art and artefacts.

Tucked away in South Guildford on Great Eastern Highway not far from the river, Monet Gallery has an abundance of paintings by well known West Australian Artists; paintings to suit all tastes. So come, browse and enjoy! If you are looking for a painting for your home or work-place, it is likely Monet Gallery has the perfect answer. There is always an array of delightful paintings in acrylic, oil, pastel and water-colour in a variety of styles and techniques. Great for that special present too! Choose from total realism to impressionism or semi abstract works, by artists who delight to depict aspects of Western Australia with their paint brush. Sizes vary and most prices are affordable. Aboriginal art is also available.
 
One of Perth's best on-going, yet continually changing, exhibitions of beautiful paintings by W.A.'s established Artists
 
The wide range of paintings is housed in a charming rustic, French Provincial style building that is sunlit. It has a back terrace, and a side courtyard that abuts a cycle path to the Swan River; a two minute walk away. The larger, main gallery of the three within the building, has a roof window that lets in natural light which is a bonus for solo exhibitions sometimes held there. However the main purpose of the gallery is to have an on-going diverse exhibition of the 40 plus artists it represents. This means that visitors will always find the building overflowing with paintings to view or buy. Many by well established artists whose names you will know! No need to wait for a specially advertised exhibition. Maureen Sylvia, water-colourist and owner has created a friendly, peaceful atmosphere where visitors can enjoy a complementary tea or coffee as they relax and view this wide range of beautiful paintings that reflect the wonderfully, diverse art to be found in West Australia. It is also a great place to meet other people who love to paint or talk art.
 
Happenings

Monet Gallery of Fine Arts is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12 to 6 pm and Thursdays 10 to 4 pm. More information is available on the web-site www.monetgallery.net.au or by phoning the gallery on 08 9277 3685. Workshops and solo exhibitions are sometimes held during the year, and on weekends in July in particular, you will find five of Monet's regular artists painting on site for visitors' enjoyment. Monet also features an artist in the studio from time to time throughout the year, and art-linked poetry readings in spring. There is always a warm welcome as Maureen believes art is for everyone.

The York Residency Museum

Convicts, ceramics and Chinese market gardeners are just a few of the fascinating subjects revealed at The York Residency Museum, York's treasure-house of history.

  • Open Days/times:Tue - Thu 1PM - 3PM, Sat & Sun 11AM - 3.30PM
  • Museums:Local History

Details

  • Facilities:Cafe,Wheelchair Access
  • Open Days:Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Saturday,Sunday,Public Holidays

Description

Convicts, ceramics and Chinese market gardeners are just a few of the fascinating subjects revealed at The York Residency Museum, York's treasure-house of history.

This 1856 heritage building, was originally part of a Convict Hiring Depot, then the official residence of York's early magistrates. As you tread the lovingly polished floorboards it's easy to imagine it as the home of one of the pillars of early York society. Locally made jarrah wood furniture intermingles with oil paintings, samplers and photographs from the mid to late 19th century. See if you can find the chair made entirely without screws or nails.

The faces, full of character, of three ex-convicts greet you in an unusual photographic portrait hanging above displays of Aboriginal artefacts- poignant reminders that settlement did not please everyone.

Definitely not just another 'dusty old place', the York Residency Museum shows aspects of civic and religious life in the emerging town with leisure time, school days and health as selected themes plus displays of personal possessions, ceramics and silverware.

Visiting Residency Museum gives you the perfect opportunity to relax unwind and get a glimpse into the lives of the people who created York - people as unique as you.
