Market fun comes withartistic twist
Hundreds of people flocked to the Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery on August 12 for the year’s third West End Markets and the opening of the gallery’s newest exhibitions: A Year in the Making and Flight: Aboriginal Perspectives from the Sky.
The crowd enjoyed browsing more than 50 market and food stalls, the roving entertainment, kids’ activities and live music.
During the markets, a crowd gathered in the gallery to officially the exhibitions.
Flight: Aboriginal Perspectives from the Sky showcases a series of works by artists in Aboriginal art centres and independent artists from all over regional Australia, including Spinifex Hill Studio and Martumili Artists.
The artworks explore relationships between traditional and contemporary stories of flying machines, birds, spirits and dreaming and the impact of flight on the Aboriginal people’s relationship with the land.
A Year in the Making is an exhibition of 12 WA jewellery makers, who each chose a theme that all artists used to inspire and create a unique piece of jewellery.
Both exhibitions will be on display at the gallery until September 23.
