A stunning photographic exhibition of local native wildlife opens next week at South West Rocks Community Art Gallery.
Organised by the Macleay Valley Arts Council with support from the Kempsey/Macleay RSL Photography Club, the exhibition showcases one hundred and sixteen “10” x “8” sized images taken by forty-nine local photographers; from high school students through to professional photographers.
“It’s very special to have such a collection of photos coming together, highlighting the incredible variety of wildlife that exists in the Macleay Valley”, MVAC President, Steve MacDonald said.
“All the photos of insects, reptiles, marsupials, monotremes, birds and marine life, draws you in, making you realize what an incredible diversity of wildlife there is that surrounds us in this special environment. What’s great, is the number of photographers who have been keen to come together for this collaborative exhibition.”
Along with the wildlife exhibition, a coffee table book is being produced with local Dunghutti words for the names of wildlife included. The book will sell for $20 with proceeds going to supporting the Macleay Valley Arts Council.
