Artists books are vital in the development of an artists career but come at a cost. Please help support Western Australian artists to publish and promote their work.

Trevor Vickers is one of the most highly regarded artists currently working in Western Australia. He has been exhibiting for almost 50 years primarily in Melbourne and Perth. He exhibited in the 1970s at the avant-garde Pinacotheca Gallery in Melbourne alongside Australia’s most significant conceptual and post-object artists. He also exhibited at the seminal Field exhibition in 1968 at the reopening of the National Gallery of Victoria. Arguably the most important single exhibition in Australian art history the exhibition included young artists committed to hard-edged abstraction. He is represented in all the major art galleries and museums nationally including the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of South Australia, Queensland Art Gallery and numerous corporate collections such as Wesfarmers and Bankwest. To date no major monograph has been published on this influential and important artist and is long overdue.

This large colour publication of 136 pages includes commissioned essays by Dr Alex Selenitsch, University of Melbourne and Andrew Gaynor, Curator and Arts Writer. An extensive interview with the artist, Trevor Vickers, by Winthrop Professor Richard Read is also included.

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.
