Goddard de Fiddes Gallery (GdeF) began in Fremantle in 1992 as project by

Julian Goddard and Glenda de Fiddes. The project was about exhibiting the work

of a group of friends and colleagues. After two years GdeF moved to Perth into

a modernist glass-fronted space in the CBD. In 1998 the gallery relocated to 31

Malcolm St, West Perth into a historic building purpose built for a gallery in the


After 20 years the gallery programme ceased at the end of 2011. During our

time as gallerists we represented prominent local, national and international

artists. The gallery participated in ARCO, Madrid, and the Melbourne Art Fair, on

a regular basis.

After a much needed sabbatical, we are continuing as GdeF Projects at our

house and garden in Fremantle. The house, designed in 1992 by Geoff Warn,

Donaldson Warn Architects, allows for a small indoor exhibiting room and

several garden spaces.

The project will not represent artists or keep regular gallery hours, but will

engage in projects that will attempt to fill a gap in exhibiting activity in Perth,

and give collectors and clients the opportunity to view works and meet artists in

a more informal and accessible manner.

Projects will be announced during the year by email, Facebook and our website.
