Vision & Sip

Rosnay Organic, Canowindra 510 Rivers Road, Canowindra, NSW, Australia

Highlighting the connection between vision boards and art therapy is insightful. Engaging in a creative activity like making vision boards can be therapeutic, allowing participants to express themselves visually while tapping into their subconscious mind to manifest their desires.

Group Exhibition: Fine Arts Fungi

Rosnay Organic, Canowindra 510 Rivers Road, Canowindra, NSW, Australia

Fungi plays a critical role in nourishing soils, in healthy food and wine production and in contributing to biodiversity. It encompasses a kaleidoscope of aesthetic wonders for artists too.

Local artists have responded to science’s belated discovery of the third living KINGDOM on planet earth – FUNGI, and Mid Lachlan Landcare has coordinated a group exhibition at Rosnay to celebrate MYCOLOGY MAY – an accumulation of fungi related activities run by Central Tablelands Local Land Services.
