ART ON THE MOVE are delighted to welcome Famous Sharron to the team as Freighting Ideas Audience Ambassador. Her role is to connect audiences to contemporary art and champion #artinwa
A message from Famous Sharron…
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.
This year 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.
As Ambassador I’ve been touring galleries all over WA. I’ve seen beautiful things, met wonderful people, and discovered incredible artists. And quite respectable public toilets.
Really, if nothing else, go to a gallery for their restrooms, they are an absolute delight.
So here’s my little guide for you on famous (and not so famous) art in WA.
