Audience Ambassador: Famous Sharron

ART ON THE MOVE are delighted to have Famous Sharron as the Freighting Ideas Audience Ambassador. Her role is to connect audiences to contemporary art and champion art in WA.

A message from Famous Sharron:

Hello Dolls, 

If you’re anything like me, the closest you’ve come to a painting is in the doctor’s waiting room and most of the art you own is made of pasta and stuck to the fridge door.

I became the Face of WA. Because no-one else wanted the job.
I love it, I’ve been going to all the Hollywood locations, Bunbury, Geraldton, Karratha.

And now I‘ve been given the inaugural honour of being Audience Ambassador for Freighting Ideas, a brand new ART ON THE MOVE and Art Gallery of WA touring program.

Isn’t that fabulous, dolls?
