Art about Town

Calling all local artists – the date for the Bassendean Visual Art Awards has been annouced. It will run from Thursday 23rd to Wednesday 29th September – mark your diaries now. Further details and entry forms will be available soon – watch this space.

This year photography has been specifically included – thanks ToB for not making the photographers feel like second class artists. I have in the past had to put up a strong argument as to how a photo can be art. And you know how hard it is to define art!

I’m not sure yet whether there will be a theme for the Awards, or whether it will be fairly open has it has been in past years. Usually the art has to have been produced within the last year. It also needs to be  entered for the first time.

The Bassendean Arts Council has recently been revitalised and now have a website where you can view local artists work. You can view this here.

And let me know if you think this is art…
