PART OF THE WHAT ON EARTH PROJECT
Curated by Tony Jones, Angela McHarrie and Jude van der Merwe
There are more than 12,000 different types of wildflowers listed in the flora catalogue for Western Australia, over 60% of which are found nowhere else in the world. The State’s geographical isolation, its climate and pollinators all play a part in this diversity. Invited artists with varied backgrounds and approaches have created works on paper in praise of Australian flora.
Wildflower State forms part of a wider celebration of the botanical world under the banner What On Earth with events and exhibitions at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Midland Junction Arts Centre, Mundaring Arts Centre and Kings Park Festival.
OPENING SUN 25 AUG 11AM - 3PM
VIEWING WED TO FRI 10AM - 5PM, SAT 11AM - 3PM
