Guest artists will also be present and are listed below. This year, the Artwalk Freo circuit covers four kilometers. Enjoy strolling or cycling through the local streetscape as you stop and explore the secret workings of the host artists’ home studios. If public transport is your preference, check the services listed on www.artwalkfreo.com “getting there”. Cars are welcome, but less fun. Some of the Artwalk Freo studios are works of art themselves. An artist's studio is where all the inspiration, sketches, thoughts and ideas merge to become something wonderful. Visitors will discover how these living spaces relate and intersect with the artists' oeuvre. The inventive process can be a solitary one and people rarely have the opportunity to glimpse inside a working studio and to engage in conversation with the artist. Here’s your chance! This is a free entry biennial community event. New work, early work and studies will be available for sale and each artist will have their own payment options: receipted cash, credit card, direct deposit and lay-by. Refreshments and other treats will also be available for sale, courtesy of community groups. GUEST ARTISTS: Studio 1 Anna Mulders and Harvey Mullen. Studio 2 Theo Koning and Frank Morris. Studio 3 George Howlett and Tom Freeman Studio 4 Jesse from Rocket Boy Designs Studio 5 Stephen Spurrier’s works Studio 7 Ruth Vickers and Annabel Dixon Proudly supported by City of Fremantle
