Art exhibitions open at Midland Junction Arts Centre

Julie Dowling, Wiru Exhibition - Mundaring Arts

Three art exhibitions will open at Midland Junction Arts Centre (MJAC) this weekend.

‘Wiru’ is a new solo exhibition by renowned Badimaya artist Julie Dowling.

The exhibition features a suite of paintings which document the revival of First Nations languages within local and global contexts.

‘Specimens’, by artist Tim Maley, illustrates the detailed form, colour and texture of his subject matter - caterpillars, moths, butterflies and beetles from natural history collections.

The second Swan Environmental Art Project will also open to the public.

Celebrating the perspectives of young people in the City of Swan, this year’s exhibition follows the theme: Plastic Pollution - Finding solutions to reduce our footprint.

City of Swan Mayor David Lucas encouraged residents to go along to MJAC to see the exhibitions and support the artists.

“Art is one of the many things that the City of Swan does really well and I’m really excited about the launch of these new exhibitions,” he said.

‘Wiru’ opens alongside ‘Specimens’ at 6:30pm on Friday, May 25, at MJAC.

Midland/Guildford Ward Councillor Claire Scanlan is looking forward to viewing the art on display.

“Congratulations to the artists and the team at MJAC for making it possible to view such an important collection which captures the rich history of Western Australia,” she said: “

The Swan Environmental Art Project exhibition opens on Saturday, May 26, and the winners will be announced from 2pm.
