7 August – 31 August 2013
The exhibition features paintings and works on paper by Elisabeth Cummings, Idris Murphy, Peter Godwin, John Peart, Lucy Culliton and works by acclaimed photographer Jason Capobianco. Six Artists | Seven Days is the culmination of a project that began over a year ago when the artists were invited to spend a week exploring the 320,668 hectares of protected wilderness working closely with scientists from AWC’s Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary in the Kimberley.
AWC is a registered not for profit organisation whose mission is the effective conservation of all Australian animals and their habitats. AWC manages 23 sanctuaries covering over three million hectares across Australia, with 80% of their staff working on the ground to implement conservation programs such as fire management and carry out strategic scientific research to help turn back the tide of extinctions.
The exhibition is a celebration of the Australian landscape and of our continued attempts to see our land from the perspectives of both the artist and the scientist.
