When Fiz is not within the gallery the space will be on display in its studio form, and viewers will be able to watch as the crocheted object gradually evolves. This work is an attempt to spend time consciously, to escape from the idea that we must multitask in order to be productive, and to…

Fiona Omeenyo Ancestors Spirits

Fiona Omeenyo draws on the culture and story-telling of her home community at Lockhart River in northern Queensland to make paintings of the spirits of both living and past occupants. Her approach is highly individualistic, creating amorphous figures that merge into the environment and the background. A room full of her paintings creates the sense of movement and activity, the ongoing world of spirit forms and human endeavours. Fiona’s style uses figurative elements that have a mythical, abstracted feeling, where the figures are carved or etched into the background layers of paint to become part of the landscape. She bases…

I WAS HERE

In I WAS HERE seven artists turn conventional history on its head. The world is flipped upside down, long held beliefs are disproved and fact replaces fiction as the artists grapple with what’s real, imagined or forgotten over time. Comprising photographic and sculptural works I WAS HERE is a fascinating commentary on history itself and our relationship to the past. Robyn Stacey (NSW) has used a camera obscura to produce rich and vivid images of the studios of iconic Australian artists. Emerging artist Tom Buckland (ACT) presents a constellation of imagined narratives that audiences view one at a time through…

Reform The History of Reformative Measures

Prisons serve four main functions in society. They punish offenders, protect the community from criminals, act as a disincentive to people considering crime and provide prisoners the opportunity to reform before their release back into the community. The exhibition Reform: A History of Reformative Measures at Fremantle Prison explores what strategies were employed at Fremantle Prison to control and change prisoner behaviour. While Fremantle Prison was at times a place of harsh punishment, it also provided prisoners with the opportunity to acquire new skills and reform. The exhibition explores the practice of religion, education, work and training at Fremantle Prison through its…

Brewery Tours at Little Creatures

One shared belief when Little Creatures was just a twinkle in our eyes was that breweries over the years have hardly been the most romantic of places.

Come on down, say hi and explore our little piece of brewing happiness. Not sure what style of beer is for you? Want to learn about all things brewing along…
