a story by Lyn Diciero on the history of the High Street Realists

"Their watershed exhibition High Street Studio Realists toured from the Art Gallery of WA to the State galleries in Sydney and Melbourne in 1980 to great acclaim.

Now Marcus Beilby, Ken Wadrop and Ray Beattie have been reunited for their first exhibition in 34 years, Fremantle Realists.

The trio shared a $15-a-week studio in the late 1970s above Archie Martin's in Fremantle's High Street, bouncing off each other as they explored realism and photorealism."
