AGM, 10th Anniversary Celebration & Guest Speaker – Glenda Lewin: WAMA Where are meets nature…
This year our November meeting is quite a special event, incorporating our AGM, Guest Speaker & 10th Anniversary Celebration…
To Celebrate our 10th Anniversary all attendees on the night will receive a free native plant!
Following a very quick AGM, Glenda Lewin will be presenting on WAMA – Where art meets nature: For those who don’t know about the WAMA Project: WAMA will be an arts and environmental precinct unmatched in Australia. It will be a landmark purpose-built gallery set within native botanic gardens and wetlands adjacent to the national heritage-listed Grampians. WAMA will provide a home to endangered plants and animals, as well as an art space to exhibit and celebrate art inspired by nature in all its forms.
WAMA will showcase artworks narrating the development of artistic achievements from Australia’s first peoples, through to the scientific and illustrative work of European botanists and explorers to the more impressionistic and symbolic works of the present day.
With a mission to educate Australian and international visitors young and old to become ‘custodians of nature’, WAMA is seeking to realise this important new entity in the realm of Australian Art and Culture under the aegis of a league of caring partners. Design work Is currently underway to create a $6 million facility to achieve this aim. It becomes incumbent upon all of us to record, protect and promote the unique species of our planet and WAMA provides an opportunity to invest in our regional environment through the inspiration of art. Glenda Lewin is the Patron of the WAMA Foundation, her husband Greg is Chair. To back up their commitment to the WAMA principles, they have created a beautiful native garden at their home near Stawell, enhanced with artworks and demonstrating the opportunities using native plants can bring. They generously open their garden to interested groups and schools and Glenda will speak about WAMA and her garden for us.
A very special supper including cutting of an Anniversary Cake, wine & cheese will conclude the evening. Do come along & join us for this evening of celebration! Please RSVP for Catering purposes:
