Gallery/Dealer Details - Gallery East, North Fremantle, Western Australia
Gallery East represents emerging and established contemporary Western Australian artists, as well as specialising in the traditional and contemporary arts and crafts of Japan and those Australian and international artists who have been influenced by Japanese aesthetics.
Established in 1991, Gallery East was originally situated in Claremont, Western Australia and founded on a deep love of Japanese woodblock prints and the traditional arts of Asia, reflected in a policy of regular exhibitions celebrating the work of the great Ukiyo-e artists.
Gallery East carries fine examples of original Japanese Ukiyo-e, including Shunga (erotic images) and contemporary Japanese prints.
The exhibition program also includes the work of established contemporary Japanese artists using a wide range of disciplines.
In January 1998, Gallery East opened its new purpose built premises in North Fremantle, Western Australia. Designed by Bret M. White of Cox Howlett and Bailey Woodland, the gallery is a variation on the â€˜white cubeâ€™, with foldaway doors to the northern wall opening onto a deck, and another smaller gallery space to the side.
New gallery interior
Exhibitions are held monthly with a range of finely made craft objects and Asian antique pieces permanently displayed in the side gallery.
