Eyes wide open!
Ian Weir with his installation piece ‘Yet to be Known’ in the “Eyes wide open” exhibition
Gorepani Gallery near Albany launched an exhibition of installations by a number of noted artists. The launch was timed to coincide with and celebrate the national screening by SBS TV of the documentary “A Million Acres a Year”, co-written and narrated by Gondwana Link Coordinator Keith Bradby, and produced by Albany’s Frank Rijavec. The exhibition’s theme honoured the way the ‘heroes’ featured in the documentary were quick to see and understand the environmental and social damage unfolding in front of them. More than 60 locals, including many of those whose stories featured on the documentary, viewed the exhibition then stayed for the screening and a great evening. Thanks to Anne Brandenberg from Gorepani Gallery and all the participating artists. Copies of the ‘Million Acres a Year’ DVD are available from http://sa-staging.com/search-programs/program/?sn=8601
