Previous Patron Events

Ignite Initiative Closing Exhibition
Artsource Patrons, artists and guests joined Artsource in Brookfield Place for a catered evening to celebrate the success of the Ignite Initiative. Proudly sponsored by BHP Billiton, the Ignite Initiative 2014 boosted seven WA artists onto the next stages of their careers by providing opportunities for professional development, relationship-building, and mentorships. Patrons enjoyed an exhibition of the artists' freshest work, some of WA's finest wines, and an exclusive presentation by artist Stuart Elliott.
Autumn Viewing & Artist Talk
A private Autumn viewing of artworks featuring John Cullinane, Indra Geidans and Clare McFarlane at Turner Galleries. John Cullinane gave an artist talk about his new paintings that abound with classical themes and surreal motifs.
"An idea will come from any source such as something or someone seen; such as an event, a book, a discussion, politics, any media whatever. I like to be open at all times to capture the idea when it comes, many ideas escape, never to be found. This exhibition draws from a variety of ideas, where I look for a sense of the mysterious and the uncanny, relationships that are not what they seem, where there is always an unknown."
