More than 40 artworks from the City of Melville are on display at Heathcote Museum & Gallery in COLLECTED: Selected works from the City of Melville Art Collection.
Melville’s Art Collection represents a significant cultural and financial investment for the City and a record of its history and change through artistic interpretations. The City of Melville Art Collection began in 1962, one year after the ‘Shire of Melville’ was established, and has grown to include over 300 works in 2015.
COLLECTED presents a selection of works encompassing the diversity of this collection, from a watercolour painting of the Swan River circa 1870-90 to contemporary works by leading Perth artists including Eva Fernández, Noel Morrison and Ben Sherar.
On Saturday, 7 February 2015 at 1.00pm, five of the local artists whose works feature in the exhibition will host an afternoon talk and share their unique arts practices, creative journeys and experiences with the public. All are welcome.
