THE WENLOCK RIVER PROJECT (Whole of Gallery)
A unique touring exhibition of paintings and photographs by a group of artists who draw their inspiration from travelling to the Steve Irwin Reserve on Cape York will be shown throughout the month of June.
Their work, shown under the group name, The Wenlock River Project emphasises the beauty and unique nature of this Reserve and of the Wenlock River which forms its southern border. The river is a sanctuary for wildlife and a haven for landscape lovers. It is also the centre of the crocodile research carried out by the Australia Zoo team.
In 2015, the group of painters and photographers embarked on an artist camp to the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve, Cape York. After a week of creativity immersed in a wide range of diverse landscapes, The Wenlock River Project was born.
The Project Team members are: painters Annabel Tully and Noel Miller and photographers Russell Shakespeare and (Steve’s son), Robert Irwin. Together they are presenting a total of over 40 stunning works of art, which will appeal to both art and nature lovers.
The Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve (SIWR) is a wetland conservation property and a tribute to Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin.
All four artists have impressive records in their chosen fields which include finalists in major art prizes and a Walkley Award. Robert has already had animal photographs chosen for major photographic prizes.
