The Cycle of Life - Modern Chinese Folk Art

​5 March to 5 April 2019


The modern folk paintings of Xiuzhou District in China detail the rhythm of life of the farmers in this rural community. The works depict the silk farming culture that has been part of this area for thousands of years, life along the banks of the canals that criss-cross the area and scenes of family and community life.  This is the first exhibition of Xiuzhou modern folk paintings to be staged in Australia.

Grooving the Grain

(Local artists using a variety of wood species to showcase the colour, texture, form and diversity of the grain) 

It is not surprising to find an active group of local wood turners and sculptors creating exceptional artworks in an area synonymous with wood given the abundance of raw material.  In a range of small workshops and studios across the Shire, these artists transform anomalies in old or odd pieces of wood into unique works that are limited only by the imagination.

The Alternative Archive

Local artists are creating a contemporary visual archive of an aspect of their community drawn from personal relationships with the people, places and stories around them that they feel should be highlighted for their implicit personal, cultural or social value.

LOOK OUT!

Tony Windberg directs a 'post-colonial' artistic gaze back out to sea to where the first European ships looked at the forbidding Australian coastline centuries earlier. 
Tourist viewing lookouts are chosen as his viewpoints, shedding light on how landscapes are framed by fixed pictorial conventions.

Fungi of the Southern Forests

What has a stem but is not a flower? What has a cap but is not a pen? What has gills but is not a fish?

A fungi.

The Manjimup Photography Club is holding a photography competition to showcase the delicate beauty of these unusual organisms and to celebrate their diversity in our Southern Forests. Photos submitted for the competition must be of fungi found in the Southern Forests.

Entries will be displayed at the Manjimup Art Gallery from 14-23 August 2019.

About Body: An exhibition of contemporary jewellery by Louise Tasker

We create and manipulate environments in which to live. Unity with the world inescapable. At some point, our environment touches the human in us, and I try to represent that...as a gold necklace, a wooden brooch....a hair arm piece....or a cape of weeds....

Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival Inaugural Art Prize

The inaugural Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival Art Prize, will form part of the community activities at the December 2019 Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival. 

A Perth Judge will adjudicate both the Open Class and the Youth Class.   In 2019 it will feature 2D work only, however, this will change in following years.

The Youth Class aims to inspire and nurture the artistic talent of young adults in our Shire and adjoining towns. 

The competition will be curated and judged on the theme of 'Harmony' to reflect the community harmony anticipated when our Cherry Festival was first named.
