Studio D'una Cittá

The 28th Annual Shell Fremantle Print Award 2003: "Among the most exciting inclusions in every print award are the artists' books, one of which took out this year's first prize.
A wonderful work titled Studio D'una Cittá (Study of a City) by Antonietta Covino-Beehre. Created to fit in a casket like box, the eight-folded gabled prints also have centrally opening folds or doors. The set of prints removed from the box become a small installation of buildings, each exploring monuments, texts, textures, colours that attest to the grandeur that once was Rome and that fascinates and romances even today. The layering of images and narratives recall the strata of Roman history which seem never ending".

Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award 2017 - Speaking Volumes

It's wonderful to see my work Studio D'una Cittá (Study of a City) is included in the upcoming show Speaking Volumes presented by the Fremantle Arts Centre, coinciding with the 2017 FAC Print Award. The exhibition opens Thursday, 21st September and runs through to 11th November.

Speaking Volumes presents a selection of award winning artists’ books drawn from the City of Fremantle Art Collection. Acquired over the last twenty years. As an art form artists’ books provide an intimate way of experiencing and engaging with artworks. How you view, touch and navigate the pages creates a uniquely personal interaction.
Combining a range of printmaking techniques, the artists’ books in Speaking Volumes take a variety of curious shapes, sizes and materials.
They challenge the activity of reading and our understanding of what constitutes art.

The City of Fremantle Art Collection, established in 1958, is the largest municipal collection in WA with over 1,400 works. The Collection’s focus on Fremantle artists and Australian prints celebrates the enduring importance of the visual arts to Fremantle.

Speaking Volumes curator Andre Lipscombe provides an overview of the upcoming show in his radio interview with James Hall from RTRFM.
