Whaleshark A-001 is an ephemeral installation by Fremantle artist Olivia Samec for Castaways Sculpture Awards, on show at Rockingham Foreshore from 11 - 19 May 2013. Curated by Lyn DiCiero, the exhibition includes 47 works by emerging and established sculptors, with all works created using recycled materials. Proudly presented by the City of Rockingham and now in its sixth year, Castaways attracts thousands of visitors each year, and never fails to amaze as a beacon of ingenuity.
Editor Lyn DiCiero is pleased to announce the launch of Artist’s Chronicle Short Films. The move follows a recent rebranding of the magazine.
The films will cover artists, events and untold stories within the visual arts, but also opens up new avenues for filmic advertising created in-house at the Artist’s Chronicle.
Shot and edited by Lyn DiCiero, the sound and distinctive sonic branding which will precede each film was created by her son, Brad Every, the driving force behind Audio Chemistry based in Melbourne. With a Bachelor of Audio Production from SAE Melbourne and more than nine years of experience as an electronic music producer, Brad has been responsible for the sound design of many audio visual projects, including short and feature films, and is sound supervisor and head sound designer/re-recording engineer at Audio Chemistry: www.audiochemistry.com.au.
The first episode of Artist’s Chronicle Short Films features Pakenham Street Art Space. Operating for more than 20 years, the Space has been revitalised under the helm of artist and manager, Tom Múller.

Welcome to our new look! The Artist’s Chronicle’s new branding is thanks to Daniel Hockey at West Coast Web Design who also designs our website. If you’ve visited www.artistschronicle.com in recent times you’ll notice videos now appearing on the site. In particular there’s an interesting feature on the late Robert Juniper, tracking the restoration of his rare bas reliefs created in the mid 1960s for the Town of Mosman Park. We hope to increase our video presence on the site, so check in soon.
In this edition we feature Italian artist Grazia Toderi in her first solo exhibition in Australia at John Curtin Gallery, part of the Perth International Arts Festival. It’s a jaw-dropping introduction to her work for Perth audiences, who, according to Director, Chris Malcolm are “stunned, captivated and mesmerised” by her video projections.
There’s an opportunity to find out more about Gavin Buckley, the new Chief Executive Officer of Artsource, and the expertise he brings to Perth through his previous involvement in the Arts and Business organisation model in the UK.
We have been focusing on young director/managers of new spaces after many long-established galleries ceased operation over the past six months. This edition we feature another two: Moana Project Space in the city, and Pakenham Street Art Space in Fremantle. It’s a chance to delve into their aspirations and evolution as the gallery landscape in Perth shifts and tilts in new directions.
This edition we welcome Phillip McNamara as our book reviewer. With the theme of ‘light’ at the Perth Festival this year ringing in our ears and probing our retinas, his review on Illuminate: contemporary craft lighting by Hannah Nunn seems appropriate.

Robert Juniper during the restoration of River Bed, eight bas relief panels created in the 1960s for the Town of Mosman Park council chambers. Despite the fact the works were thrown out during renovations in the early 1990s, Juniper remained unfazed by the act and relished the idea of restoring them. The September 2008 edition of the Artist’s Chronicle sheds light on the restoration process. Film production Studio Kraze. Film courtesy the Town of Mosman Park.
