Have we got a FATHER'S DAY for you!

There is so much happening on the strip this Sunday 7th September. Get your 30 minutes in and consider leaving the car behind and taking advantage of this wonderful spring weather. WALK, RIDE or STROLL down to Beaufort Street with the family and we'll see you there!

Sunday 7th September 9am - 1.00pm

Father's Day on Beaufort takes on another dimension! Take in a long, lazy breakfast or a languid lunch on the strip at one of our many amazing restaurants or cafes, followed with a stroll down to the corner of Barlee Street in the carpark area to visit our first Beaufort Street Art Market!

To whet your appetite we've listed a few of the participating artists in this newsletter -  but there are more!

Visit our Fence Gallery, a display of local artists canvasses, illustrations, sculptures, photography and paintings that will just 'turn up' on the day or meet our Suitcasers in the Suitcase Art Park - a mini stall area filled with designers or browse the 18 amazing Artisan Stalls.

Filocamo captures character!

Tell Dad he can be caricatured by a living oxymoron! (Joseph Filocamo's own description of himself!)

Joseph is The Artistic Engineer and is our feature artist at the new Art Market this Sunday.  Especially for Dad on Father's Day Joseph will draw an amazing charicature for your Dad for just $20.00.  You will love it and so will Dad - bring him down and get him all drawn up!   

You can read a full interview with Joseph about his work and his visit to the Art Market here at Foodie Cravings blog. 

I'm the boss and he's the man!

Local pop and stencil artist I'm the Boss (Shane Hughes)  is influenced by everything he comes into contact with. He has a major fascination with the acceptance of all things popular in the public eye and always questions what it is about certain people, products and places that makes them desirable. His work reflects and adapts constantly to everyday happenings as he always looks to combine what he already knows with new discoveries in the world of design.

Check out his work at The Fence Gallery at the Beaufort Street Art Market this weekend.

Behind the Pencil

SPLICEJAM is a series of handmade street art inspired miniatures where two ideas may be harmoniously joined or wildly juxtaposed.
Come and meet Jason McLeod who is one of our Suitcasers - already packed and ready for your enjoyment on Sunday at the Beaufort Street Art Market.

What a great Groper!

Or...more accurately... a 'Cephalopholis Urodeta' in the Grovesnor alley way, Mt Lawley painted by Amok Island together with Fergus McFudge this past weekend.

An amazing initiative has been put together by Mel McVee from the Laneway Collective - as a collaborative connection between many sections of the community. The first major project will create a unique street art gallery in a forgotten laneway between Grosvenor Road and Chelmsford Road in Mount Lawley. The laneway is just behind IGA on Beaufort Street.   30 Artists, 30 Walls - 1 laneway!  Details of the artists involved are here on our website.

We'll keep you posted as it develops - very exciting!
