In association with artCollectiveWA.

Artists: Rene Collot D’Herbois, Herbert William Gibbs, Jesse Hilder, Tony Jones, Sandra Leveson-Meares, Wally Mandaark, John Oldham, John Olsen, Lorna Prendiville, Lloyd Rees, Keera Slavin, Archibald Bertram Webb, Duncan McGregor Whyte. We have also invited four artCollectiveWA artists to participate – Penny Coss, Jo Darbyshire, Jeremy Kirwan-Ward and Joanna Lamb.

So Perth finally had a real winter. It took us all by surprise. Little wonder thoughts are turning to summer. Appropriate that we’d planned this celebration of the warmth of the season ahead. As mentioned above, we are showing some timeless gems from the collection with the welcome inclusion of the works of the artCollectiveWA artists. Most excitingly, Joanna Lamb spent three days in the gallery during install week painting a large pool directly on to the wall.

Another special feature of this exhibition is the first public display of more than 20 small works by Tony Jones. Tony is an icon of the WA visual arts, a keen sailor and a good friend of Janet’s. Over the past 20 years Tony has sent a small work to Janet for Christmas and sometimes other special occasions. We have recently accessioned these into the collection as a sub-collection titled Happy Christmas Janet. We’re sure they will give viewers much pleasure and we’re thrilled to be able to show them as a group.
