Motherland Exhibition – Hammond & Wheatley Bellingen
February 1 @ 9:30 am - February 7 @ 4:30 pm
Capturing the biodiversity and post-fire recovery of Mount Hyland, Motherland Exhibition is both an ode to our wild spaces, and a call to action. Pete Knock’s photography, and the artistic visuals of Pingala Walsh together illuminate the ongoing story of the incredible ecosystems on the privately owned 968 hectare property adjoining World Heritage Gondwana Rainforests, known as Motherland.
Rosemary Yates, passionate custodian of over 30 years, hopes the exhibition, will raise awareness about the need for ongoing biodiversity conservation across the board.
“The impact the intense fire season of 2019 had on local wildlife in ancient Gondwanian forests that don’t usually burn was heartbreaking.”
“Hopefully the exhibition will inspire people to make a difference, to become involved in taking care of country and protecting and healing our incredibly important native forests.”
