A new photographic exhibition of native flora will open at The University Club Gallery on July 2.
The Botanica exhibition is developed around two major fine art collections of Banksia images: archival prints based on images of banksias that were first collected around the King George Sound, Albany, in 1801 by Robert Brown; and prints based on images collected in the Botany Bay area between 1770 and 1801 and included in the Centennial Collection by Joseph Banks, John White, Luis Nee, Robert Brown and David Nelson.
Professor Ted Snell, director of The University of Western Australia's Cultural Precinct, will open an exhibition of photographs by John Maloney, the former Vice Chancellor of Curtin University.
All images are of archival quality (limited edition) printed on canvas in pigment and individual prints will be for sale.
John Maloney has exhibited in Perth and annually at the Barry Stern Galleries in Sydney. His images are held in private, corporate and institutional collections nationally and internationally.
The exhibition is part of the UWA Cultural Precinct's WINTERArts program and runs from July 2 - August 15.
Opening night is Friday July 2 at 6pm. Please RSVP to [email protected]
The University of Western Australia's Cultural Precinct presents a dynamic, creative and intellectually rigorous program of exhibitions, performances and associated cultural activities that amplify current concern, flag future issues and provide a perspective from which to view the past. There will soon be a major development of new cultural venues on the Crawley campus.
