Featuring some of the state's most respected visual arts practitioners, alongside emerging and mid-career artists it is a chance for regional audiences to experience the diversity of contemporary arts practice in the west.

This year, the 13th Bunbury Biennale continues to celebrate the diverse identities of WA based artists and showcases contemporary visual arts practice across a range of media, from sculpture and installation to painting, drawing and printmaking.

The Bunbury Biennale was initiated by the City of Bunbury Arty Collection Committee in 1993 – it is the second oldest Biennale event in Australia.

Sea Salt & Red Dirt at Little Creatures Upstairs


Event Title
Sea Salt & Red Dirt
Participating Artists
D Thornton HIck
Venue Name
Little Creatures Upstairs
Venue Address
40 Mews Road Fremantle Western Australia 6160
Australia
Description
A Life's Work by D. Thornton Hick

For those of us who have had the privilege of growing up with the beach at our front door and the Australian bush at our back door we may underestimate the influence this freedom has on shaping and moulding us as we grow. For those with an artistic eye, natures influence becomes a constant visual stimulus to create.

Darrell Thornton Hick (1941-2013) always delighted in scouting about for beach flotsam and finding 'useful things'. He described himself as an artist and traveller, becoming a designer in the 1960's which permitted him to design, create and travel throughout his working life. Sailing and a family history based in shipping out of Southampton in the UK led to history writing and travel throughout Europe and Australia but always, always Thornton painted in his spare time.

Exhibiting his artworks, sculptures and contemporary furniture since 1990, this exhibition, Sea Salt & Red Dirt, is the first exhibition of Thornton's work since his passing. Presented upstairs at Little Creatures, 40 Mews Road, Fremantle from 6 – 28 April, the exhibition is a rare opportunity to glimpse the wondrous influence the Australian landscape had on this creative, inquisitive, gentle man who captured the weather, the tides and the character of our country in gouache, pastel, charcoal, oils or watercolour in every moment he could take.
