The unique natural and cultural values of Rottnest Island or Wadjemup have long inspired artists and this will be reflected in the exhibition theme ‘The Essence of Rottnest’.
Over 100 professional artists have accepted an invitation to interpret the exhibition theme and create artworks on 50x50xm canvases, sponsored by Oxlades Art Supplies. Funds raised from the sale of artwork will contribute to the Foundation’s role in delivering environmental and heritage conservation projects on Rottnest Island.
The Exhibition is being professionally curated by Sandra Murray, a highly regarded Art Curator who currently works with the Royal Agricultural Society of WA and Bankwest. An arts professional judging panel will award a First Prize and two Highly Commended prizes. Prizes are provided courtesy of the Rottnest Island Authority, Hotel Rottnest and Rottnest Express.
We invite you to come along to view and purchase artworks between 10.00am to 4.00pm on Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 May and Wednesday 15 through to Sunday 19 May, 2019.
