The History Society is trying something completely different a mid week, day time event. This is a wonderful opportunity to see spectacular panoramas of Fremantle at super size. The quality and detail of these images is mesmerising.
The panoramas presentation will be made by Andrew Woods. The wonderful series of panoramas, which he collated in 2016 will be presented on special screens at the Hive, in the John Curtin Art Gallery building, Curtin University, (Bldg. 200) on Tuesday, 23 May from 3 – 4pm.
Aroma Café, opposite the John Curtin Art Gallery will be open until 5pm for those wanting refreshments.
The event is free but bookings are essential. A map of the Curtin University showing the location of the Hive is available on the links below.
Please let Jennifer Dudley know if you are attending (and how many) by Monday 22 May on 9314 7765 or email email@example.com.
Come along to an Art Tour at Fremantle Prison on Tuesday 28 February at 5pm. Please note that some of the content is quite graphic in nature and includes prisoner graffiti. On the other hand, much of the art is spectacular and executed by prisoners who were very talented artists. The Art Tour provides a fascinating insight into the psychology and emotional wellbeing or otherwise of the prisoners who spent time inside.The tour will go for one hour and will not involve stairs. Matthew, who is a great guide will take us to visit the art murals in the exercise yards, plus talk about the conservation project involving the restoration of the solitary confinement block, plus show you through the Main Cell Block. Please meet at the entrance to the prison.
