About the Project

HABITS OF HORSES invited the community to celebrate and explore our relationship with horses, learn new art skills from senior artists and artisans, undertake new experiences, express creativity and get up close and personal with these beautiful animals that have been such an important part of our history.

The HABITS OF HORSES project presented curated exhibitions with works by international and nationally recognised artists together with community artists, beginners and dabblers.  It married the historical with the contemporary, providing opportunities for reminiscing and story-telling through workshops, events, talks and demonstrations across several venues including the Mundaring Arts Centre, Midland Junction Arts Centre and Mundaring Sculpture Park.
