ACCESS ABILITY exhibition to amplify marginalised voices

A new multidisciplinary art exhibition launching at the Red Earth Arts Precinct will shine a spotlight on talented artists from all walks of life.

ACCESS ABILITY opens tonight, highlighting the stigma and bias surrounding differences. 

The exhibition will feature artwork by Perth artist Ericka Baker, Karratha Senior High School Students, and multidisciplinary artist Lois Olney.

The opening night will include mesmerising musical performances from renowned jazz artist Lois Olney and Sophie Downham from St Luke’s College, with speeches
from award-winning artist and Karratha Senior High School educator Chelsea McAuliffe and local hero Luke Whatley.

There will also be two workshops held during the exhibition period: a creative workshop by Life of Lincoln, where he will share his illustration techniques and a private curatorial tour hosted by the Red Earth Arts Precinct’s resident art critic, Mackenize Crane.

City of Karratha Mayor Daniel Scott said the exhibition will feature stunning artworks from renowned artists.

“This exhibition focuses on how art is a chance to unite people rather than focus on what makes us different,” Cr Scott said.

“We have some fantastic pieces from Ericka Baker and will also showcase our great talent at home with our local emerging artists.

“It’s also an opportunity for people to experience the powerful voice of Ngarluma jazz and blues performer Lois Olney and hear her amazing story.”
