The Call of Wild Places Exhibition at The Grenfell Art Gallery

Tue 4 September 2018, at 10:00 am - Sun 14 October 2018, at 4:00 pm

Tuesday 4 September – Sunday 14 October

wilderism” n. represents artists that go into the wilderness to seek inspiration and connection to ‘place’ through direct experience.These artists then create from their heart without regard for accepted ways of creating but rather seek to develop through loose and energetic techniques the raw forces seen in nature itself.

In the heart of New South Wales, Australia, a group of creators have launched the wilderism arts movement in June 2017.

The originators of this movement are Joy Engelman (me), Bev Duncan, Jacqueline Wilson, David Quinlan, Susie Hillenbrand, Marion Mikkelson, Judy Kich, Margot Huebner, Cherelynne Carden, Fayah McKenzie, Jane Tonks, Diana Brooks, Nicole Foxall, John Kich and Kaye Partridge being the first to join this new movement in the arts.

On 24th June 2017, the “Wilderists” formed an incorporated cultural organistion to promote their creations, artworks, poetry, story telling, photography etc. and the ongoing story will be told through exhibitions, journeys, artworks, poetry, photography and the many other creations that come from this interaction of “creatives and the wilderness.”

The places that we have explored so far are: Lake Mungo, Arkaroola, Mt Canobolas, Larras Lee Siding, Capertee Valley, Mt Airlie, Lake Paika and quite a few other places… but all in Australia! We really love the Aussie landscape and want others to also see the beauty contained within this incredible land we call ‘home’.

We are a terrific fun loving bunch of people that enjoy exploring together, painting together, socialising together as we find our way through the jungle of existence!

Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm, Saturday 10am – 3pm & Sunday 10am -2pm
