Local art on public display thanks sponsorship from Gallery by Satterley

Thanks to a sponsorship from Satterley’s Gallery estate, the Willagee Community Art Group was able to host an exhibition of their works at a professional gallery for the first time its 12-year history.

The exhibition, entitled Diversity for the range of mediums represented, was on display at Earlywork in South Fremantle for 12 days from 10 February featuring acrylic, watercolour, pastel and sculptural art pieces.

The talents of these local creatives were duly recognised by art lovers with 12 pieces selling on the opening night and some 30 works finding new homes over the exhibition period, representing well over half of the art on display.

“We are a hobby group who do art for pleasure, but nothing is more rewarding than to have your work appreciated,” said Willagee Community Art Group member Annette Jacobs who sold several watercolour paintings.

“We have a few trained artists as members, but we welcome anyone to be part of the group. It’s great because we can all help, mentor and critique each other.”

Members of the Willagee Community Arts Group delighted with their first professional exhibition.

The Willagee Community Art Group meet weekly on Monday afternoons between 12.30pm – 3.30pm. While the Willagee Community Centre is undergoing renovations, they have been relocated to Leisurefit Melville on Canning Highway.

Diversity follows the recently opened public art installation Nexus, showcasing art as a prominent feature of Gallery, a new neighbourhood offering a beautifully integrated lifestyle of architecture, nature, and history with all the convenience of the surrounding amenity.

Talking about the sponsorship, Satterley’s Community Development Manager Amy Blundell said, “As a new member of the Willagee community, we are delighted to be able to play a positive role in helping to strengthen existing groups and activity.”

“With public art being such a prominent feature in the estate, supporting the local arts scene felt like a natural fit.”

“The Diversity exhibition has created a real sense of community pride."

Members of the Willagee Community Arts Group delighted with their first professional exhibition.

For people looking to take their next big step in buying a new home, Gallery is a new micro-community inspired by creativity and has been carefully curated through its design to add depth and colour to the everyday.
