An art exhibition aimed at raising the profile of Indigenous artists from the mid-west region of Western Australia will open next week in Perth’s city centre.

The ‘Good Heart Mid-West Aboriginal Art Exhibition 2012’ is a community-based project backed by Oakajee Port and Rail, which will showcase work from contemporary and traditional Indigenous artists of WA’s mid-west region.

This is the fifth year the exhibition has been run in Perth, and in celebration of its continued success, Oakajee Port and Rail have announced a new devleopment grant for two participating artists. The recipients of these scholarships will receive art supplies and tutition at the Kidogo Art Institute in Fremantle.

The exhibition will be staged in the foyer of the QV1 Building from 18-22 June. Entry is free, 10am-4pm. All artwork is for sale.
