Like Water Poetry Reading

Join artist Jo Darvall and poets from the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre as they present a poetry reading at the Mundaring Arts Centre. This is an opportunity to celebrate Jo's beautiful exhibition and the strong links to the Perth Hills area as it comes to a close.

For Jo Darvall, art and storytelling are intrinsically linked. A love of story inspires her work and invests it with tension and texture. Whether she’s exploring a true historical narrative or a timeless fable, it’s the modern vibrations that interest her. A keen collaborator with other artists, Jo has exhibited in solo and group shows around Australia and in Singapore. Since moving to Perth in 2009 Jo has continued to grow her art practice by distilling her ideas and uncovering new stories from the West – including those of Western Australian historical figure C.Y. O’Connor and his daughter, Kathleen. She works from her Pakenham Street Arts Space studio in Fremantle, and is an arts educator at Fremantle Arts Centre. Her artwork features in the Janet Holmes a Court, Artbank, WA Water Corporation, Perth Crown Towers, WA Children’s Hospital and Credit Suisse Collections in Australia, and Private Collections in New York, South Africa, Hong Kong, Beijing and One Ferrer Corporation Collection Singapore.

Physical Mindfulness of Painting - Meet the Artist

Join us to celebrate the body of works created during Harrison See’s residency at Mundaring Arts Centre. Harrison will present a brief overview of the outcomes of the residency and answer questions about his arts practice.

Harrison See is an emerging West-Australian artist with a background in manufacturing and industrial design. He predominantly uses paint and sculpture to construct scenes rich in narrative and symbolism. See’s most recent focus has been the search for stories and themes that transcend cultural and social difference in an effort to generate empathy and understanding amongst diverse audiences. However, after an extended period practicing art in Asia, he has returned to Perth to explore and pay homage to his hometown’s natural environment.
