The event is called FLOW and is an exhibition centered on the medium of timber. FLOW refers to the creative process, from an idea to its refinement and realisation.
The flow from Mind to Hand, cerebral to physical, manifesting in objects conceived and crafted from the natural world.
Contemporary Art Space Mandurah (CASM) and Mandurah Performing Arts Centre are also venues for the triennial and will be linking with Lost Eden in a ‘triennial art trail’ with a common theme of ‘Salt Water to Fresh Water’. The exhibition title, FLOW, sits within this relationship. It references the geographical significance of Dwellingup and its relationship with the nearby Murray River as it flows through the jarrah forest down to the Indian Ocean. Dwellingup has a long association with the timber industry. Timber is a renewable resource that should be valued more highly than it currently is. This exhibition will show how small quantities of timber are used to create fine objects with a high value.
Gallery Opening Hours: Wednesday & Friday, 11am – 2pm, Saturday & Sunday 10am – 4pm
