THE NATURE DIARIES – TUARTS, TERNS AND TIME
10 Mar – 16 Apr
Nature Diaries: Tuarts, Terns and Time is the 23rd solo show for South West artist Sue Kalab, whose watercolours for this exhibition explore trees, birds and natures antiquity.
The pace of modern society means that the timelessness of our natural world is often overlooked, along with its wonder - the biodiversity and all the lives that are codependent within an eco-system.

HomeFRONT focuses on the impact of war, the waiting, the grief, as well as the return of physically and mentally damaged soldiers.
Featuring 16 contemporary female artists from Albany and the Great Southern, this exhibition references the history of the region. Albany, the regional centre of the Great Southern, was the place from which the first two convoys of Australian and New Zealand soldiers departed Australia in late 1914.

Bunbury Regional Art Galleries rst opened its doors on February 14 1987, and to celebrate 30 years of the nest art in Bunbury we are looking back through the years and bringing out some of the highlights of the City of Bunbury Collection.
Each of BRAG’s previous directors have been asked to select favorite works from their time at the helm and the resulting exhibition spans the depth and breadth of the city’s extraordinary collection, bringing some much loved favorites out into the light.

Light moves presents seven major works by contemporary Australian artists which explore the possibilities of the body in video. Each work is an example of great contemporary storytelling, made by the leading proponents of the video form in Australia.
Drawing on work acquired over the last three years for the National Collection, Light moves provides a neat and highly accessible survey of contemporary video practice in this country. As well as being deeply engaging, the experience of this work is also contemplative.
Light moves includes projected and screen-based works which show the body performing in a range of real and imagined spaces.
Each work engages viewers in rumination on the place and significance of real bodies in a contemporary world denied by digitisation and the increased commodification of movement.
The tour of this exhibition has been developed by the National Gallery of Australia, following its presentation at the NGA
