GALLERY'S BIG PICTURE
Our State Art Gallery heads into the New Year with a five-year plan to make significant additions to the collection. Works by Callum
Morton and Dale Frank are the first works purchased as part of the new policy to collect contemporary Australian works by artists with
national and international profiles. The Art Gallery has been campaigning for funds to enact their plan, receiving $10 million from the
State Government and $1 million each from business leaders such as BHP Billiton, NAB, Wesfarmers and Woodside.
If such contributions continue local audiences will be sure to enjoy some great experiences at their gallery, as well as the potential for the
gallery to build shows that can tour the country.
NEW ART SPACE OPENS
Well-known local artist and art enabler,
Lizzie Delfs, is coordinating a new gallery
space in the upstairs area of Aldas Bar
and Cafe in Perth. Lizzie aims to hold
shows that demonstrate a high degree of
conceptual rigour and excellence. Next
time you're on Murray Street, duck down
Wolf Lane to check it out.
