Art is in Our Nature #SaveWesternport

In News October 5, 2020

A number of Australian Galleries artists feature in a current group exhibition fundraiser, ‘Art is in Our Nature.’

54 acclaimed contemporary artists, including Sue Anderson, Raymond Arnold, G.W. Bot, Philip Davey, David Frazer, Kate Hudson, Martin King, Geoffrey Ricardo, Mary Tonkin and John Wolseley have come together in this exciting exhibition to increase awareness of the campaign to stop AGL’s proposed gas import terminal from being approved at Crib Point, and to raise urgently needed funds for Save Westernport Inc. including to mount a legal challenge in partnership with Environment Victoria and the Victorian National Parks Association.

This exhibition presents a unique opportunity to take powerful collective action for the health and longevity of Westernport by making a donation or acquiring an artwork by a leading contemporary artist to help reach the fundraising target of $100,000 by November.

The exhibition runs until 25 October 2020. To view the exhibition online, click here.
