A RAFT of local artists are among more than 30 who will converge on eight South Fremantle homes for the annual Artist Open House Fremantle.

Names like Olivia Samec, Alessandra Rossi, Britt Dunbar, Lesley Munro and Dale Frances will join artists from all over WA and Australia for the event, embracing the chance to show their work in a more relaxed setting.

Artist Open House Fremantle director Cathrina Read said the show would be diverse, with styles and prices to suit everyone.

“Artist Open House Fremantle gives everyone a chance to look at art in a comfortable and relevant context, while taking a sneak peek into some beautiful private homes,” she said.

She said there would also be a new element to this year’s event in the form of a ‘stylised home’.

“We will furnish and style one house entirely, so everything in the house, including the art, will be for sale,” she said.

The event runs from November 13 to 15. Visit www.artistopenhousefremantle.com
