New Gallery Space opens up opportunities for Regional Artists

Friday night saw the opening of Bunbury’s newest gallery at Marlston. Filled with a crowd of good looking people, pretty impressive wine and cheese from Ferguson Falls, and a diverse and exciting collection of art, ‘dipikshens’ was humming.  Probably the first commercial gallery of its kind in the area ‘dipikshens’ perfectly compliments the precent which already boasts some great cafes and restaurants as well as the Lava Glass Gallery and Splash Gallery. Fiona (Fi) Collett has always been a lover and supporter of regional and West Australian Art, and she felt the time was right to offer opportunities to both the regional artists and the people of Bunbury to open a gallery that presented an outlet that enhanced this retail and tourist sector of town.

Currently representing over 15 artists, Fi was thrilled with the turn out on Friday which included over 80% of the represented artists. Amongst the ‘stylish’ crowd were arguably Bunbury’s most respected collectors of West Australian art, Liz and Lloyd Horn.

It was refreshing to see such a great mix of people attend the opening and perhaps was a reflection of the diversity of the artwork, that it appeals to so many.
