Cossack Art Award

Artist in Residence 

July 11 to August 7


July 2 to SEPTEMBER 2022

Annette Peterson reinterprets her dad’s memories of life at Parkerville Children’s Home in the 1950s through her paintings in Repositioning a Place in the Heart. Annette began researching and recording his story during an artist residency at Midland Junction Arts Centre. This was followed by a residency at Parkerville Children’s Home, where she was able to paint ‘en plein air’ while re-listening to her dad’s history. Her dad’s story emerges through her work, his emotion intersecting with her own.
Free admission but registration is essential for catering

To be opened by Kim Brooklyn, CEO of Parkerville Children's Home.

Recent Exhibition


FEB 24 to MAR 19 2022

Through the Streets & Other Adventures investigates the everyday suburban drive, as a painted version of the moving image from a passenger's point of view.

There are over 280 paintings as part of the exhibition that makes up four stop-motion films. Each film emulates a "Live" option from an Apple iOS smartphone, where individual paintings replace the digital film stills to create a painted rendition of reality.

One of the series exhibited, Shotgun Through Scarborough, has been selected for the 2022 REvelation Film Festival (WA), was the overall winner of the 2021 Stirling Art Award (WA) and was showcased in the 2021 Bunbury Biennale (WA). Through the Lights and Through the Streets were exhibited in the 2020 and 2021 City of Joondalup Invitation Art Award (of WA) respectfully. Through the Trees was a finalist in the Inaugural 2021 Lethbridge Landscape Award (Qld) and a finalist in the 2021 LA Film Festival (USA).

Officially opened by Sandra Murray, Artist Director/Lead Curator, Sculpture at Bathers.
