Trea­sured works of art on show

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

TREA­SURED – an ex­hi­bi­tion cel­e­brat­ing the spirit of cu­rios­ity and act of dis­cov­ery – is on dis­play at the Wan­neroo Li­brary and Cul­tural Cen­tre.

The City of Wan­neroo ex­hi­bi­tion shifts away from tra­di­tional ideas of trea­sure to look at the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment, her­itage and art.

The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures art­works by Judy Rogers, Leesa Pad­get, Wade Tay­lor and Claire Daven­hall, link­ing in ship­wrecks, the ocean, botany and the nat­u­ral world.

As well as paint­ings and sculp­tures, maps from the Com­mu­nity His­tory Cen­tre and mu­seum ob­jects are on dis­play.

There is also a range of ac­tiv­i­ties and work­shops ac­com­pa­ny­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion, in­clud­ing botan­i­cal draw­ing and macro pho­tog­ra­phy work­shops.

Trea­sured will run un­til Oc­to­ber 6 as part of the ‘Find Your Trea­sure’ se­ries at the cen­tre, which in­cludes an in­ter­ac­tive chil­dren’s ex­hi­bi­tion, Pirate’s Lair, in the con­fer­ence room.

Chil­dren can take part in craft ac­tiv­i­ties, read books on ex­plo­ration and see a 3.5m pirate ship built and dec­o­rated by com­mu­nity members.

The Lands­dale-based North­ern Sub­urbs Men’s Shed made trea­sure chests that ac­com­pany the ship.

The Find Your Trea­sure theme tied in with Chil­dren’s Book Week.

Mid­dle and up­per pri­mary school stu­dents have at­tended ses­sions with au­thors and younger chil­dren have taken part in sto­ry­time.
