Dryandra s Wild! about art

Art lovers who missed out on seeing the Wild! Flowers From the Bush exhibit that finished at the Nexis Gallery on November 18 still have a chance to see it after part of the collection was installed at the Dryandra Country Visitor Centre.

The project involved more than 300 artists, community members and school children during a six-month artist-in-residency with Kate Campbell-Pope, where a broad cross-section of Narrogin residents drew inspiration from the diverse local flora and fauna to create fibre works.

It was planned that the exhibition would be put into storage but Arts Narrogin decided to lend part of it to the visitors centre.

Dryandra Country Visitor Centre manager Helen Elliott said she was thrilled to host part of the exhibition and was planning to display it up until Christmas.

“We’ve only had it up for a few days but we’ve had quite a few people look at it and some people have come in just to look at it,” she said.

The centre will also be selling cards in the lead up to Christmas made by Arts Narrogin which were also launched along with the Wild! Flowers From the Bush exhibition.
