Stuck for gift ideas this holiday season? Have a peek at the Art Gallery of WA's shop,
and take in a show while you're there. The Gallery Shop has Perth's most extensive
range of the iconic Kartell brand, as well as specialised books, design products,
fashion and jewellery.
MAJOR PUBLIC SCULPTURE FOR PERTH
Commendations go to James Angus, winner of the single largest art commission
ever undertaken in WA. James heads a team that includes consulting engineer Doug
Knox, lighting designer Peter Mclean and industrial designer Sebastian Adams. For
James, a Curtin graduate who splits his time between Australia and the US, the
$1 million sculpture is a further mark of success in his fast-tracked art career.
THE PEOPLE CHOOSE
Kudos to Shane Picket t, recipient of the $5000 People's Choice Award in the Western
Australian Indigenous Art Awards 2009. Shane's popularity is long-standing -- he won the
prize last year, when the awards event started. Pictured above is his Medicine grounds that
become ready during Bunuroo, 2008, acrylic on linen 183 x 153cm.
