The Sculpture Walk has undergone a transformation and in June 2018, the City of Melville is launching its inaugural ART IN PLACE initiative bringing temporary public artworks to significant locations across the City of Melville.
The first ART IN PLACE commission will be an ephemeral projection-based installation on to the body of water where the Swan (Derbarl Yerrigan) and Canning (Djarlgarro Beeliar) rivers meet. The projections will be illuminated on to boats, moored in the area. The installation titled Confluence will be produced by Perth-based artists, VJzoo (Kat Black and Jasper Cook), in collaboration with illustrator and artist Kambarni (Kamsani Bin Salleh).
Confluence will take place along the Canning Beach Road foreshore from Thursday, 21 June To Sunday 24 June 2018, nightly from 6:00pm to 8.30pm.
After the success of the inaugural program, the Open Studios will return in 2018. Visit artists' studios, hear talks and demonstrations on September 8 and 9, 2018.
The Canning Bridge Arts Trail brochure will guide you to 17 unique public artworks stretching along the foreshore between Point Heathcote to Mount Henry Bridge.
As you stroll along the Canning River foreshore you may have noticed some eye-catching sculptures and art pieces decorating the way? In fact there are 17 unique public artworks that stretch the foreshore from Point Heathcote to Mount Henry Bridge and to help you spot them - and learn a little more about each of them - a Canning Bridge Art Trail brochure is now available.
The pocket-size brochure, which has been beautifully illustrated by talented artist Kelwin Wong, is available at Heathcote Gallery (a great point to start your walk!) or any of the City’s Libraries. Download the trail Guide here.
