Here & There

August 31 @ 8:00 am - September 6 @ 5:00 pm

A journey with birds living on the edge

Launch: Friday 31st August 7pm
Exhibition: 1 – 6th September
Where: Louis Joel Art Gallery, Altona

Here & There is an exhibition reflecting on the fascinating birds that rely on the fragile coastal and wetland habitats—Shorebirds, the long distance travellers and the residents— many of which undertake spectacular and seemingly impossible migration journeys.

Urban sprawl, shrinking habitats, and increasing disturbance are just some of the challenges facing these birds. This exhibition seeks to highlight these risks and threats and the importance of preserving the environments so critical to their existence and survival, and the irreplaceable role they play in our interconnected natural systems.

The works draw on contemporary urban culture and imagery presented as paintings, drawings, collage and mixed media pieces.
