Animals inspire art

FEATURING paper mache and watercolour paintings, Sue Daw's latest art exhibition is anything but ordinary.

The self-taught Calliope artist, who has chalked up a long list of solo and joint exhibitions in her career, will exhibit at the Tondoon Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre throughout October.

Ms Daw's Above & Below the Waters of Tondoon Lake exhibition will officially open on Saturday at 10.30am and will include Tondoon Botanic Gardens conservation officer Lindsay Boyd as guest speaker, who will talk about the range of fauna living in the gardens.

It is this fauna which has inspired Ms Daw's latest exhibition - a work in progress since the start of the year.

The exhibition will feature about 15 watercolour paintings and 60 paper mache pieces depicting animals such as goannas, birds and flying foxes.

Above & Below the Waters of Tondoon Lake will be on display until October 29 and can be viewed daily from 9am-5pm.
