Arty inspiration

White lily by Emma Blyth - oil on canvas 120 x 80cm
There are two galleries and an art framers in Smart Street Mall and these businesses have inspired the arty element of our events. These businesses will all be open during the Smart Street Parties.

Emma Blyth is a Mandurah artist who paints in oils and acrylics. Her paintings express a passion for colour and a unique sense of translating our culture to canvas. The Western Australian landscape has inspired Emma to utilise large brushstrokes and vibrant colours to portray scenes from the rugged Kimberley to the beautiful beaches of the south-west.

The beautiful, original, oil on canvas pictured above is 'White lily'.  Emma plans to get a few more new pieces finished for next Friday so don't miss this chance to pop in and see her latest works. 

Emma Blyth Gallery is at 9 Smart Street Mall, Mandurah.

Christian Fletcher is a landscape photographer who lives in Dunsborough in the south-west. His photographs of Western Australia have gained much popularity and recognition as fine depictions of this diverse state. No stranger to travel, Christian has traversed much of the Australian coastal region and beyond, always on the lookout for the next image.

Christian Fletcher Gallery is also at 9 Smart Street Mall, Mandurah.

Terrace Art Framers are committed to supporting the local and regional arts scene. They are sponsors of the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre and they offer wholesale prices to artists and photographers for framing and printing. We have been working with the team from Terrace Art Framers and the All for the Mall retailers committee to create the Smart Street Parties. We recommend you visit Terrace Art Framers for friendly, professional service and let them treat you to a delightful framing experience.

Terrace Art Framers are at 9 Smart Street Mall, Mandurah.

Dancing in the street

Here at the Smart Street Parties we love a bit of dancing in the street.  Our friends at Simply Swing dance school are bringing their dance floor to the party! To learn some new moves before our events or if you are inspired by the dancers you see there, we recommend you check out Simply Swing's dance classes and events.

First-in, first-served at the Suitcase Market

Stall sites at the Suitcase Market are allocated on a first in, first-served basis and at only $5 each they are going faster than... dodgy old vinyl collections!  

To book a stall (or four) download the form from here and send it back to us quick-as-you-can.  

We can't wait to see what tempting goods stallholders bring in their suitcases.  Maybe I'll find the one Herb Alpert record I don't already own...
