Plans are on the Baw Baw Arts Alliance drawing board for an Environmental Art Exhibition in Autumn 2013 that explores themes around the value of our shared environment and natural resources.
Spokesperson Sue Keirnan said the Arts Alliance is keen to draw on the creativity of artists, inventors, gardeners or anyone who has a passion for Baw Baw’s natural environment to participate in a collaborative art experiment.
“The idea behind the exhibition is to engage the arts and broader community to promote the importance of caring for our local environment and resources for current and future generations to discover, experience and enjoy,” Sue said.
Creative environmental themes include:
• The endangered Baw Baw Frog – the emblem of the exhibition.
• Carbon sink sculptures.
• Enduring art pieces that incorporate living plants.
• Renewable or energy saving art eg solar, photovoltaic, wind, LEDs etc.
• Art pieces made from recycled materials such as fabric, wool, wood, metal, plastic, glass, etc.
• Musical, written or theatrical representations.
“At the moment, we’re tossing around a few concepts and seeking expressions of interest from people who would like to be involved with this exhibition individually or as a collaborative effort.”
If you’re having a brainwave already or would like to be involved in this exhibition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, providing theme interest, basic concept and return contact details by 30 June 2012.
More detailed information will be published next month on the Baw Baw Arts Alliance website, www.bawbawartsalliance.org.au, or follow us on Facebook, tinyurl.com/bbaa-facebook.
