New Growth in a Diverse Climate

Posted: 31st August 2011

The Shire of Kalamunda is pleased to announce exclusive details on the first ever exhibition to be held in the much touted Zig Zag Cultural Centre Art Gallery.

Shire President Donald McKechnie said, “The exhibition features new work by local artists with an emphasis on landscape and the flora and fauna of the Darling Scarp. There is a full colour catalogue available for a small fee, which will make a great keepsake, and many highly collectable artworks to view and purchase from both established and emerging artists.”

The contemporary art scene is a diverse place, and historically, the hills area east of Perth is rich soil for artists. We are proud to announce this, the first exhibition in our custom-built gallery, which showcases a selection of talent and celebrates the richness and diversity of Kalamunda and surrounds. The exhibtion features new work in a variety of media; jewellery, painting, illustration, sculpture, glass, ceramic, and more.
