APRIL

1st to 28th April – Daily from 10 am – 2 pm @ Edenvale Homestead Community Room

Art Exhibition: Stories and Structures: New Connections                FREE

 

This exciting Exhibition which is touring regional Australia was launched at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney in June 2018.  We are delighted to have the opportunity to bring this exhibition to Pinjarra – only one of two regions to host the art work in Western Australia.  The exhibition is in Kalgoorlie during February and March and will travel to South Australia after being displayed in Pinjarra during April.

 

Stories and Structures: New Connections is an exhibition exploring the remarkable connection between traditional aboriginal art and the microscopic world.  Twenty one Indigenous artists from various regions of Australia have teamed up with some of Australia’s leading microscopy scientists to explore how images from different traditions pass on knowledge and shape our understanding of the world.  It is hoped that the images will open new conversations and provide opportunities to make new and lasting connections.
