“Art Springs for Wildlife” Exhibition and Festival will be held at the Berry School of Arts over the October long weekend. From the 29th Sept through to 3rd October great art, performance, wildlife talks and a variety of creative workshops for kids and adults, are on offer.
The event is supporting Wildlife Rescue South Coast who operate 24/7, rescuing and caring for wildlife from the Illawarra to the Victorian border.
This exhibition includes paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, photography and weaving from famous, practicing, and emerging artists. The works, ranging from representational to abstract, engage with the land and our relationships with the myriad of animal, bird, reptile, insect and plant species.
Friday night, headlined by poet Tug Dumbly, features music, performance poetry and pizza. Our inter-relationship with nature will be explored and confronted with humour, irony, and passion.
The black summer fires pushed twenty species to the brink of extinction. Floods too, took their toll as do logging native forests, land clearing and feral animals. Caring for our native wildlife is vital not only for them, but for future generations and the health of the land itself.
In participating in a workshop, viewing or perhaps, purchasing an art piece, you will be supporting the front-line efforts of WRSC volunteers.
