It recognizes that everyone in the world is affected by grief. Thursday 30th August, 10 - 12 pm Presentation by Wm Barrett & Sons.
ART AS A MEETING POINT. This is an exhibition of aesthetic natural beauty, whilst it educates, entertains and enlightens. The paintings will be a backdrop for a series of public talks during the exhibition such as birds and their curious lives, and also why Australia’s south west is a world-famous biodiversity hot spot. There’ll be a presentation about the ritual of saying goodbye - how religions and cultures have evolved to farewell loved ones. There will also be an outdoor event with Collie Shire and Friends of the River planting native trees on the Collie River bank. The community is invited to these free events. Sue will take an art workshop. On Friday 27th July at noon, she will give a talk about her work which she describes as “an encounter with the artist”.
All events are FREE for the public to attend (except Drawing Workshop which is payable to the Gallery).
Please arrive 15 minutes before start time.
