Petrichor Gallery + Walpole Artisan Markets
invite you to enter the
Petrichor Gallery and the Walpole Artisan Markets invite you to enter the littleBIG Art Prize 2019 exhibition from January 6th to February 3rd 2019. The competition is open to all ages and talents and has no specific theme but recognises that it is often the little things in life that create the greatest magic.

The Walpole Artisan Markets will also be held on Sunday 6th January 2019. These markets aim to bring together artisans from across the southwest and provide a venue to showcase their talents. Products on offer include local art and craft, handmade clothing, regional produce, rare plants and much more.

Walpole is located on the south coast of Western Australia and is surrounded by wilderness and forests. It is this wonderful natural environment that draws artists and visitors to the area and provides so much inspiration. Some find inspiration in the majesty of the giant forest trees and others in the miniature world hidden amongst the mosses
