Marcus Beilby | Sightings

All Events

Following 2014's Fremantle Realists exhibition, Marcus Beilby returns to Fremantle Arts Centre to resume his quest to reveal the fabric of everyday life through a visual language of finely tuned realism.

Sightings brings together a body of new paintings and artworks from the City of Fremantle Art Collection which set intimate moments against a backdrop of public settings.

Marcus Beilby is an established Fremantle-based realist painter who forged a career with like-minded image makers Ray Beattie and Ken Wadrop and exhibited nationally under the moniker of the High Street Studio Realists in the early 1980s.

The City of Fremantle Art Collection, established in 1958, is the largest municipal collection in WA with over 1,400 works. The Collection's focus on Fremantle artists and Australian prints celebrates the enduring importance of the visual arts to Fremantle. Exhibition opens Friday 26 May at 6:30pm and runs through to Sunday 16 July.
