Bodies of Work: A PAWA Members Exhibition

  • 01 August 2020
  • 10:00 AM
  • 16 August 2020
  • 3:00 PM
  • Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery, Henry St., Fremantle


PAWA is delighted to have secured the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery for a new look members' exhibition.

The exhibition provides a unique opportunity for individual members to showcase a coherent body of their own work within a dedicated space. Each Body of Work may be composed of one or more pieces of work unified either thematically, technically or stylistically.   

The exhibition also provides for members at all levels of experience who wish to exhibit one or two pieces of work which will be hung in one or more group sections.

As well as excitement, this post COVID 19 event brings with it a sense of urgency. We thank you in advance for responding to our tight deadlines.  

Categories of Entry:

1. Body of Work: Individual entrants have the opportunity to secure 3.5 linear metres of wall space in which to present a coherent body of work.  One or several large works or a collection of smaller works may be displayed in the allocated space at the artist’s discretion. Coherence of the grouping may derive from the subject matter, mediums and techniques or presentation.  We encourage an early response as spaces are  necessarily limited.

2. Works for group presentation: Individual entrants may submit one or two works (maximum size per work 1m x 1m including frame) to be hung in one or more group sections.
