Mus­ings by two lo­cal artists

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

TOURISM ex­ec­u­tive, ma­rine bi­ol­o­gist and artist Wendy Mor­ris teamed with lo­cal Mia Messinger to pro­duce the Mus­ings art show in the Co­conut Grove build­ing on Macrossan St, run­ning for the rest of this week. The duo hosted a launch on Fri­day night, at which guests could ap­pre­ci­ate Mia’s clean, un­clut­tered con­tem­po­rary work, show­cas­ing lo­cal scenes such as sun­set at Ju­lat­ten — while also por­ing over the strik­ing im­ages by Wendy: large col­lages de­pict­ing reef wildlife com­posed of lit­er­ally hun­dreds of tiny im­ages. Both col­lec­tions vividly due jus­tice to the lo­cal land­scape and ma­rine world.
