Rocky Bay are proud to present ‘Our Story’ – a showcase of artwork by 29 artists living with disability who have honed their skills attending the renowned art groups at Rocky Bay’s Studio!

For the first time, Rocky Bay has joined forces with the Perth Fringe World Festival to bring this exhibition to the QT Hotel Perth from 16 to 19 February.

Each of our artists has their own story to tell; their highly personal narratives have escaped the pages of the books that form the canvas and have spilled over the cover for all to see – quite literally! Each artwork is mounted on locally sourced second-hand canvas books and framed in white A3 shadow frames.

Our artist’s work allow a rare glimpse into the mind of the artist and offer a rich tapestry of colour, texture, line and form to be enjoyed by all!

After opening night, the exhibition can be explored in the lobby of the QT Hotel until Sunday 19 February.

More about ‘Our Story’

Defying the adage “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” We proudly invite you to our group show featuring multi-disciplinary artworks by 29 artists living with a disability, each with their own story to tell.

All artworks for the ‘Our Story’ exhibition have been created in-house at the Rocky Bay Studio and mounted on locally sourced second-hand canvas books.

Accompanying each piece will be a description of the work and the concept behind it, offering insight into the context for each piece and allowing a rare glimpse into the mind of the artist. The venue is fully wheelchair accessible, making this exhibition a welcoming and enjoyable event for all. The Rocky Bay Studio is a place where the imagination runs wild. This vibrant art space holds workshops and creative art sessions focusing on skill development, personal interests, and independent expression, with the mission of making a positive impact on the overall well-being of our talented artists living with a disability. By exploring and developing these artistic voices we build confidence, and a sense of pride evident in every work of art.
