Artists embrace environment

CATCHMENT Collective is an exhibition of artwork from a group of Sunshine Coast artists who have a deep love of the environment.

They call themselves Catchment Collective and their aim is to make green art, works that speak of place, the social and cultural environments that are intrinsically linked and raise questions.

What binds the artists strongly together is this respect for the natural environment and a wish to make art works that speak of the landscape, in the landscape.

Members of the group, Jan Dunlop, Wendy McGrath, Richard Newport, Elizabeth Poole and Corrie Wright will showcase works that reveal this love of the natural world through documentation of Green Art projects since 2009, such as a tenday Green Art project at Tinbeerwah, Floating Land 2011 and Treeline 2010.

Catchment Collective will be officially opened Friday, November 11 at 6.30pm for 7pm by co-founding members of the group, Richard Newport and Wendy McGrath. Come along on Wednesday, November 16 at 1pm, meet the artists and enjoy sharing ideas at a free artists' floortalk.
