Brought together by Kidogo Arthouse Gallery owner Joanna Robertson and WA sculptor Tony Jones, the event sees 65 artists display their creativity in sculptures made from a number of different mediums placed in various vantage points.

She said the space was perfect for this kind of event. ‘When several sculptors expressed an interest in showing at Kidogo we felt the time was right to stage a large show that extended outside Kidogo and along Bathers Beach.

‘A public art event like this brings the community together from artists to business leaders, school groups and tourists.’

She said she hoped the event would help bring more people to the west end of Fremantle.

‘Planning this event has been so much fun and has brought so many people together in a great sense of common purpose, enthusiasm, camaraderie, celebration and achievement for getting a great idea off the ground,’ she said.

‘Everyone loves sculpture exhibition and this event will bring thousands to Fremantle and give a boost to the local economy.’

Sculpture@Kidogo is on display at Bathers Beach until April 1.
