Natural Inspirations is a special showcase of artwork featuring work of more than 30 artists, all inspired by the natural environment drawn from the Bundaberg Regional Council Collection. Natural Inspirations will run from July 22 until September 14 at the Childers Art Space (CHARTS).
Natural history and art history come together and meet in this special showcase.
Natural Inspirations represents a range of historical periods, styles and media, including painting, sculpture and photography.
It features significant artists from the historic Dr Egmont Schmidt Memorial Collection. Other artists in the city collection show their passion for various natural themes and landscapes, such as seascapes by Charles Hazzard, Nicola Chatham and Anthony Cooper and sugar cane by Tina Harada and Matthew Johnson.
The exhibition, which runs until September 14, showcases the rich tapestry of our heritage showing its strong connection to the land through farming, creating varied opportunities using various representations of art.
