Art Collective WA tells the stories of Western Australian artists through its Book Club.
We are an artist-run initiative, established in 2013 with the sole aim of improving the exposure of important Western Australian visual artists, in Australia and internationally.

Over the last four years we have attracted a great following in Perth and beyond through our exhibition and artist talk program, participation in art fairs and more recently through our Book Club. It’s a publishing program that we kicked off in 2015 with the production of our first monograph about the artist Trevor Vickers, launched in May 2016.

Our next book will be the first publication to focus on the art and career of Jeremy Kirwan-Ward.

Jeremy is a senior Western Australian artist whose professional practice extends over 45 years. Widely collected, his paintings evoke Jeremy’s coastal existence alongside his endless fascination with spectral phenomena. Jeremy is also known for his significant contributions to international art dialogue and the Australian Centre for Concrete Art.

Why do we publish books on artists?

The publication of monographs on our artists is appreciated as an important way of capturing their part in the art and culture of Australia and to inform people about their incredible careers.

How much does it cost to publish?

Writers, photographers, designers and printers deserve to be paid. So, we’ve done the numbers. To produce a 150-page monograph that features over 100 colour plates and essays by knowledgeable arts writers John Barrett-Lennard and Margaret Moore, we need to raise $15,000 by 31 January 2017 to receive the Creative Partnerships Australia PLUS1 matched funding.

How to join our Book Club?

We seek your support. Your tax-deductible donation will go directly to the cost of producing this major publication and your dollars will be matched by Creative Partnerships. We will also publish your name in the book, unless you prefer to be anonymous.

We hope that by joining our Book Club in this way, you will enjoy the camaraderie of our artist group and other supporters, as well as your significant hand in securing the ongoing legacy of our visual art culture.

We look forward to your company when we launch the book in August 2017.

Art Collective WA is a not-for-profit incorporated association, run by artists, for artists.

Established in 2013, our sole aim is to improve the exposure of established Western Australian visual artists in Australia and internationally.

Our permanent exhibition space in Cathedral Square in the heart of Perth city shows artists’ high quality work. Other programs include participation in art fairs (Sydney, Singapore), artist talks and interviews, as well as publishing (our Book Club).

We support our operations through art sales and leasing, a Benefactor and donor program, and some public project funding.

Qualified professional artists are invited to join the group through membership. Currently we have 29 artist members, who understand there is a collective approach to running the organisation and that the outcomes reflect positively on members’ careers.
