Whilst here, enjoy a stunning panoramic view across the Blackwood River Valley and farmlands from the high, country style verandahs.  Don't forget your camera.
 
If you're an art lover or fellow artist, add 1 Riverview Studio to your list of things to do when visiting Bridgetown. It's just a short 4km country drive from the main street and we'd love to see you.

Description

This fuels my use of up cycled materials as an avenue to create nature inspired sculptures that not only send a message but are aesthetically pleasing. I work in a diverse range of media, namely bronze, cement, timbre, steel and fibreglass. My artwork varies from small gallery size pieces to larger outdoor/indoor works. When creating sculptures, I place emphasis on form, structure, expression of movement and of course the meaning of each piece.

I use a range of media, oil sticks, pastels, acrylic and oil paints and paper mache sculpture. My first love is oil sticks and pastels. I use these in my emotional landscapes. These drawings use blending, rhythm and harmonious balance to show you what I feel when I capture a moment in the scenery around me. They evoke rather than provoke, allowing you to to be embraced by the emotion of the moment.

Description

The Brierley Jigsaw Gallery located in the beautiful historic town of Bridgetown, has a unique place in the attractions of the South West. Started over 60 years ago by Mrs Jessie Brierley, the jigsaws were placed in the lounge for the amusements of her guests - rather than drinking in the bar! The original collection of 60 mounted jigsaw puzzles was presented to the Bridgetown community by Mrs Brierley. The collection continues to expand through gifts from visitors, including the World's Smallest Wooden Jigsaw. Donations are used to maintain the existing collection and to mount new pieces as they become available. In 2001, many jigsaws were professionally framed and hung. Lighting improvements were made and the gallery has taken on a new lease of life with visitors from all over the world who have heard of our unique attraction.

Description

For, after securing my loving father and my adventurous mother, my gift: to enjoy to make pictures and to frolic around with colour and shapes. Doing so, brings me much satisfaction and joy.

I graduated from Sydney’s City Art Institute, with a BA in 1984. Since then I've been working as an artist, illustrator and teacher, mostly using water colour and ink on paper and acrylic on canvas.

I like to start with a theme or an idea and then see where it takes me. It is always a surprise to see what happens when I get out of my own way.

Cecile Rigoli

I like building art within the art, completing what's existing, bringing the common into a new world.

Description

Being a professionnel picture framer gives me the chance to meet many artists, art lovers and creative people and I often have to answer The question "are you an artist yourself ? " My truthful answer would be that I like telling stories through various forms of art, mixing a range of media and poetry. 

Chloe Wilder

Chloe Wilder is yet another Margaret River blow in from a small and extraordinarily exotic country off the East coast of Australia.

  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
  • Galleries:Drawing,Painting,Mixed Media,Print Making,Artist Studio

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

Her current body of work is focusing on the modern female portrait. In her large scale oil paintings, Chloe attempts to connect with women who display an air of strength and hunts down faces on social media.

It seems a tad odd of her to paint people she doesn’t know and to expect you to be impressed by her renditions of those who mean squat to you, but that is the whole point. What inspires a painter? Can you communicate a feeling? Is it the same feeling for everyone? What is the connection between the artist and the muse? How is that connection forged between people sometimes on opposite sides of the world? What even is a portrait in the era of selfie culture?

Christian Thompson: Ritual Intimacy

The John Curtin Gallery and MUMA (Monash University Museum of Art), will present a major survey exhibition of the work of Bidjara artist, Christian Thompson, one of Australia’s leading and most intriguing contemporary artists.

  • Open Days/times:Monday - Friday 11am - 5pm, Sunday 12pm - 4pm
  • Represented Artists:Christian Thompson
  • Galleries:Photography,Mixed Media

  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Sunday
  • Wheelchair Access:Yes

Description

Perth audiences will have the opportunity to view photographic, video and sound-based works by this major artist. Thompson interweaves themes of identity, race and history with his lived experience. Christian Thompson: Ritual Intimacy explores the unique perspective and breadth of Thompson’s practice from the fashioning of identity through to his ongoing interest in Indigenous language as the expression of cultural survival.

Featuring a major commission created for this exhibition, Christian Thompson: Ritual Intimacy surveys Thompson’s diverse practice and is also accompanied by the first monograph on the artist’s work, including essays by Brian Catling RA and Professor Dame Marina Warner DBE, CBE, FBA, FRSL. The specially commissioned installation is an ambitious multichannel composition, developing the sonic experimentation that is a signature of Thompson’s work. Incorporating Bidjara language, it will invite viewers into an immersive space of wall-to-wall imagery and sound: “Bidjara is officially an endangered language but my work is motivated by the simple yet profound idea that if even one word of an endangered language is spoken it continues to be a living language,” Thompson says.

Description

He’s incapable of stinting on the time required to hand-make beautiful, elegant objects which buyers cherish for a life time and bequeath to the next generation as heirlooms or collector’s items.
 
For a number of years he has been creating exquisite timber and metal furniture pieces and sculptures in a Workshop on the farm where he’s lived for 10 years with his family.
 
In his woodcraft and black smith shop he works creating and designing pieces that are unique and mostly a one-of design not just another craft shop but as a place and space that visitors can feel and smell the elements of steel, wood, fire & water, his workshop is  located in apple packing shed built in the early 1900s ,and his creations now being displayed in a purpose built gallery with materials sourced from the refurbishment of the Mount Barker apple cool-stores built in 1918 ,now known as Corkescrew Gallery and Workshop.
 
George says the 100 year old shed “is a perfect complement to the works I exhibit made from W. A. timbers – new and recycled".
 
George's passion for wood starting out  as a carpenter and joiner at the age of 16 and the metal working skills came from his father in law, now 91, a career blacksmith all of his working life.
 
There are plenty of stories such as these to hear and wonders to observe when you visit the Corkescrew Gallery. You’re welcome to spend time enjoying the artworks at your leisure, or alternatively, watch  as George transforms wood and metal into collectible and also functional pieces of furniture and art.

David Galloway

In the past Open Studios exhibitions, my work focused on creating narrative rich, household furniture and objects made from up-cycled materials. In 2018, I am stepping from looking at the things that surround people and make their lives rich and livable, to looking at how to enrich people’s identity in the context of their community and culture. This shift is accompanied by a considerable increase in the size of the works.

Description

Working with the concept of “different minds”, I’m developing interactive sculptural installations and collaborations across the 4ha of the Ferart Studio property.

My art practice seeks to create narrative rich pieces that investigate the integration of scientific, rational and economic activity; with the ecological, communal, intuitive and sensual aspects of human culture. It places a strong emphasis on inviting people to live more rich and interesting lives.

During Open Studios there will be collaborative activities and events for all ages, see the Ferart Studio website and Facebook page for details.

Description

The main theme of my work has been based on “family” – the lives lived and being lived, portraits of my current family and tributes to past generations. This is a challenge which provides a continuous source of inspiration to me.

I have also been working with home made recycled paper mache and canvas, into book form, my imagination being ignited by a family of grubs under a piece of Jarrah bark . “The Grubs Dairy” showing like us, the rhythm of their lives and the marks they make.

Along with painting, collage and drawing, Deanne is also using textile techniques such as silk screen printing and shibori, echo, resist and indigo dyeing with new and upcycled clothing and fabrics to explore these themes.

Deanne lectures in Visual Arts at South Regional TAFE Margaret River.

Debbie Chambers

In Open Studios 2018, I’ve used the creative process to explore the concept of “different minds”. The result is an “art scape” of up cycled works across the studio and property, that provide stories and a narrative exploring the experience of living and coping in a complex world of difference. “Same, same but different” using Mindfulness to view this space well describes what I am grappling with in these works.

Description

My art finds a place as “Quirky”, capturing elements of function and form, imbuing soul, storytelling, sharing new skills and old ways. It is about creative designs using repurposed materials – collecting, finding treasures, exchanging, sharing, using existing resources, making new things from old, and reducing consumption. Most of my work uses the flotsam and jetsam I find around me, for expression and imagery that illustrates what I see and want to express to others.

At Open Studios you will experience colour, light, assemblage, textiles and installations. Throughout the process, I delve into how we can reduce waste, create social networks, build opportunities, and enrich communities to encourage hope, optimism and creativity. Some works are collaborative, some provocative and many I hope are inspiring. Come and spend some time exploring the space. Enjoy the creative design ideas and projects you find, bring a picnic if you like and sit and soak up the works in the bush setting. Join the interactive activities, workshops and events we are planning for all ages over the two weeks of Open Studios…see Ferart Studio website and Facebook page for details.

I love to paint. Most of my practice focuses on native flora, fauna and marine life, striving to capture color, life and movement in representational form. I have developed my own technique of mixed media painting on recycled roofing iron. I use the same technique to indulge my fertile imagination in a series of whimsical figurative works. My passion for art has taken me through a vast range of endeavours including managing and curating Art Galleries and Exhibitions, oil portraits, relief sculpture, cartooning and caricatures, murals and gardening.

Durack Homestead Museum

The magnificent homestead was originally built in 1895 by the Durack family on Argyle Downs Station. The famous Durack family home became known as one of the social gathering places of the Kimberley.

  • Open Days/times:April - September
  • Galleries:Mixed Media
  • Museums:Local History
  • Historical Sites:Farmhouses

Details

Description

Constructed of handcrafted limestone blocks with crushed termites mounds used as mortar, it was a magnificent building for its time.

During the early 1970’s a decision was made to remove the homestead before Lake Argyle began to fill in order to preserve this magnificent building for all time.

The homestead was dismantled stone by stone with every stone coded in such a way so as to be able to be rebuilt with every stone back in its original position.

The homestead now lives on as a museum dedicated to the pioneering spirit of the Durack Family. The Historic Durack Homestead Museum is operated by the Kununurra Visitor Centre and is open to the public daily from April to September. For further enquiries or out of season viewings please contact the Visitor Centre on (08) 9168 1177 or by email: [email protected]

Note: small fee payable upon entry to museum grounds
