‘Compositions’ by Ian MacRae

About the Artist and Collection

Ian spends as much time thinking about the composition of a painting as the painting of it. His prime motivation is to represent accurately on the canvas what he has imagined for the piece. There are a diverse compilation of ideas to this exhibition. Since reengaging with painting four years ago Ian’s main subjects have included local dogs, Rottnest Island, sailing ships and memories of various places that he has travelled to (including Greece, Scotland, Japan and Nepal). Ian has developed a style that owes much to pointillism, with the difference that he likes using squares to give the impression of mosaics.

Freedom: Stories from Skate Culture WA

At some point in their lives, almost everyone in Australia has stood on a skateboard. Whether it sits by the door ready to roll, under the bed gathering dust or buried under a pile of boxes in the garage, the skateboard is a ubiquitous object in the average Aussie home. This summer, the City of Melville will pay homage to that humble symbol of freedom, expression and rebellion – and the subculture it spawned – with a fully immersive exhibition, Freedom: Stories from Skate Culture WA. Featuring commissioned works by highly regarded WA visual artist Bevan Honey, the exhibition will turn the spotlight on Perth’s contribution to a cultural revolution and trace local stories, design innovation and artistry from the 60s to the present day. Not only that, there’ll be plenty of opportunities for people to bring their board and have a skate! Freedom runs from Friday, 3 December 2021 to Saturday, 19 February 2022 at Yagan Mia Wireless Hill Park and Museum. The exhibition is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10.00am to 4.00pm and extended hours on special event days.

Present Making Workshop – The art of gratitude


Does your child love to make their own gifts? Then this Christmas present making workshops with Strength Heroes is not to be missed.
At this workshop, kids will get arty and have fun making contemporary presents that their family and friends will treasure. Kids will make four 4 very arty gifts for Mum, Dad, sisters and brothers and Christmas decorations. We can’t tell you what they will make cause then it won’t be a surprise! Kids will leave with wrapped presents ready to put under the Christmas tree. But be warned, they may be so impressed they will gift them to themselves. Best of all, we will keep them entertained while you take the opportunity to finish your Christmas preparations.
Not only will your child learn some new art skills, they will also explore and celebrate what they are grateful for and how to practice gratitude all the time and not just at Christmas. Each child will receive a Gratitude Game which is an easy way for the whole family to develop the art of gratitude.
Wear clothes that don’t mind a bit of paint. Bring a nut-free lunch, water bottle and afternoon tea.
This workshop proved the highlight of the Christmas season for the last five years so hurry and book to secure a place.
These workshops are hosted at The Art Space Collective – Scarborough’s first innovative and inspired community arts hub! For all enquiries please email or call Fiona on 0404 649 204 Please choose carefully as no refunds are available. Transfer to another class or to another child can be done.
As of 1st of July, Strength Heroes is required to collect GST on all workshops it runs at The Art Space Collective.

The City at New Year’s Eve


Say farewell to 2021 with exciting street entertainment for all ages including daring circus performers, children’s workshops, vibrant installations, roving acts, and fireworks! Each year, this free family-friendly event draws thousands of people from all over Perth into the city and Northbridge.

Plan ahead and visit Forrest Place to get some great food from the Twilight Hawkers Markets from 4.30pm. Visit some Christmas Lights Trail installation before wandering to Yagan Square where the Variety Stage displays comedy acts and circus performances to entertain all ages between 6pm and midnight in the amphitheater. But don’t go too far, check out the daring and graceful aerial display at 8.30pm located by the digital tower.

Next take a walk down William St and be immersed with a party of street performers and roving entertainers, from loud and funky roving bands to magicians, jugglers, and stilt walkers. Kids will find all the fun in Perth Cultural Centre, with the annual Fun Fair including carnival rides and games galore. WA Museum is also extending their hours until 9pm and additional children’s workshops are taking place right on their doorstep.

At 9pm the kids can get ready to count down to the first spectacular fireworks display while those without a curfew can enjoy a magnificent sparkled sky that will lead us into the New Year at midnight. To get a good spot for the fireworks, make sure you are located in the following spots:

  • Perth Cultural Centre
  • Yagan Square
  • William Street (between Francis and Roe Street)
