Bimblebox: art - science - nature


The exhibition showcases artists interpretations of the Bimblebox Nature Refuge which is currently under threat from coal mining.  Inspired by the unique ark of life found at the Bimblebox Nature Refuge, a group of artists camped on the reserve documenting, drawing and recording in order to capture the environmental, social and scientific significance of this unique landscape. 

The artists have also drawn inspiration from scientific research and historical texts.   The exhibition includes paintings, installations, photographs, assemblages, artist books, digital media, soundscapes and printmaking.
