About this event

Inspired by the birdlife of the Bimblebox Nature Refuge, this exhibition is a unique installation of artist prints, poetry, prose and musician’s birdcalls by over 450 people worldwide. Each of the 153 bird species is given voice by a writer, an artist and a musician. Individual bird prints are 'hung in the round' and the writing and music accompanying the artworks, captured and presented as an audio soundscape. Together these elements create an immersive experience for the visitor. Bimblebox Nature Refuge is in central western Queensland's Galilee Basin. Its future is now threatened by coal mining.

SURROUNDED BY NATURE Chris Osborne

Chris Osborne started out with artistic ambitions studying Fine Art and Graphic Design in the mid 1990's. He veered off course for 23 years, applying his skills to computer mapping in government departments across Sydney and Newcastle. Photography and video coaxed him back to art. In 2018 he quit his job and sold his house to pursue a life of adventure, travel and art. Osborne is inspired by the Australian environment, its unique habitats and the creatures and plants that live in them. Surrounded by nature is Osborne's fourth exhibition since his return to art. He has captured a wide variety of Australian animals, birds and reptiles in exquisite detail using his favoured medium gouache, an opaque watercolour paint. Osborne has a studio and gallery at Possum Park, Kowguran, north of Miles.

On the Curved Wall

Faces of the Golden Age

Jaguar Ngo

This exhibition pays homage to past actors who shaped Hollywood as we see it today. From James Dean's 'Rebel without a Cause' to Audrey Hepburn's 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', the performances from these actors have stood the test of time and justify the aptly named 'Golden Age of Hollywood'.
