Response to the Bunyas
Dogwood Crossing, Miles Exhibition
John Mullins Memorial Art Gallery

This exhibition responds to the unique environment of the Bunya Mountains as experienced by Indigenous artists, artists who live on the mountain and artists who visit the mountain seeking to experience and be inspired by this special place.

The Bunya Mountains, the traditional lands of the Wakka Wakka nation, is a vital and grounding place that attracts and connects, drawing on the rich tradition of bringing together people from near and far. The Bunyas have become a refuge for the world’s largest stand of ancient bunya pines Araucaria bidwillii and more than 30 threatened species. Today it is a retreat for people to rest and recharge, and for many incite a deep spiritual experience.

Works on Paper
Bill Perry

6 November 2021 – 15 January 2022

In this collection of work Perry explores the spectrum of drawing, finding himself drawn to a more emotional expression of his subject. He is looking for the poetry in the representation of his subject, and uses both traditional and digital tools in this quest.
