FIVE shipping containers of Christmas supplies for Kakulas Brothers led to the formation of the Robertson Park Artists Studio collective, after the artists had to decamp from their original Northbridge premises.
This year the RPAS turns 15, a celebration marked with its annual exhibition in their park premises.
“With many other artist collectives now closed, it could be the second oldest artists-run studio in Perth,” founding member Graham Hay says.
Temporary walls have been erected and the studio spruced up with a fresh coat of paint for the Epochs exhibition, Friday November 6–8, 10am–5pm at 176 Fitzgerald Street, East Perth.
