Women Painters of the Desert

Friday 8th March / presented by Bec Bowman

Joining Bec on Artbeat to discuss their exhibitions for International Women's Day is artist Marina Strocchi and Anna Kanaris. Marina's work is being displayed this week at South Fremantle, with Anna bringing it to us. Aboriginal art is the focus of the gallery, and the two talk about their backgrounds; mentor and volunteer work in remote communities, and how this led to the two exhibitions here in Perth.

Marina gives us the details behind her artistic journey and interactions with Indigenous art. They discuss the importance of supporting galleries through art centres, as a means to recognise Aboriginal artists properly. As art is culturally important, it is essential to ask questions about sourcing, and to get younger people involved, knowing the facts of history in order to produce goodwill.

The exhibit - The Coastal and Desert Women Cultural Expression - is from tonight at 6:30pm until late October at Early Works in Fremantle, and another exhibition open Wednesday - Sunday: 10:00-4:00pm. The exhibition is also free. You can catch Marina and Anna there tomorrow at 2:00pm for a casual but informative discussion.
