    Western Australian Aboriginal artists will travel from across the State for the Revealed: WA Aboriginal Art Market this Saturday (April 7).

     

    The art market is an open and accessible place to engage with Western Australian Aboriginal art.

     

    In its 10-year history, Revealed has featured almost 400 WA Aboriginal artists, has been experienced by more than 50,000 people, and has generated almost $1.5 million in sales.

     

    Located at the Fremantle Arts Centre's leafy Front Garden with live music and food options, the art market is a great option for a family day out.

     

    The Revealed program also includes artist talks, a film night and an exhibition featuring works by about 80 new and emerging Western Australian Aboriginal artists. The exhibition will be open during the market in the Fremantle Arts Centre's nearby galleries until May 20, 2018.

     

    Revealed is presented by the Fremantle Arts Centre (City of Fremantle), with funding from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Commonwealth Department of Communications and the Arts.

     

    Comments attributed to Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman:

     

    "The Revealed art market is a fantastic opportunity for the whole family to engage with spectacular Western Australian Aboriginal art.

     

    "This is a rare opportunity to have a chat and purchase affordable works directly from the artists and arts centres from all corners of our vast and diverse State.

     

    "Located in the gorgeous surrounds of the Fremantle Arts Centre, the art market will be a delight for all ages."
