Celebrate legacy of women and art
THE legacy of prominent female artists who were also environmental campaigners will be celebrated during an exhibition in Caloundra titled Wild/flower Women II: Art, Environment and Activism.
Associate Professor Sue Davis is co-curator (along with Nina Shadforth) and will also contribute an Anywhere Theatre performance on May 19 titled Wildflowering: Women who
changed the world through
art, featuring the writing of Kathleen McArthur and Judith Wright.
Ms Sturm is contributing artworks for the exhibition, which will be on show at Caloundra Regional Gallery from May 3 to June 17.
This new exhibition celebrates the legacy of Queensland women who have used their art and artistry to care and protect the country.
In association with the Wild/flower Women
exhibition, a one-day symposium is also being held on Monday, June 11 as well as a wide range of workshops and events, including the Anywhere Theatre production on Saturday, May 19.
