Thursday 27th October, 6 – 7:30pm with light refreshments provided
Situated in the foyer of the Margaret River Library, the Cocoon gallery is showing Annie Bowerman’s stunning photographic images of the South West, combined with Al Purdon’s unique West Australian timber frames. The exhibition will run to the end of November.
After a move from managing WA Pol’s Forensic Crime Scene Photographic Unit and then administering the Geographe Catchment Council, Annie finally followed her dream of capturing all the moods of the South West through the lens of her camera. Nature based photography is her passion and her catalogue of images featuring the South West’s celebrated biodiversity, land and seascapes is extensive.
Coming from a machinery maintenance background, Al developed his interest in woodwork and framing attaining further skills with each of Annie’s images that needed hanging. Sharing a passion for conservation, Al and Annie pursued alternative materials to enhance the images – using face cuts, mill ends and general “waste” from the WA timber industry. The aim became to find a unique way to turn a discarded product into a valuable one-off piece of art.
All artworks will be for sale and prints of the images can be requested. If you can’t make it to the launch, come in over the next few weeks to view their unique way of presenting the South West.
Listen to Mike’s jazz music and hear about his novel in the relaxed surroundings of the Margaret River Library. All welcome! Light refreshments will be provided. Mike Nelson is known as a superb jazz pianist, composer, arranger, singer and educator. Now, he is the first time author of the fiction novel ‘Muso’.
Thursday 20th October, 6 pm to 7:30pmRSVP by 19th October for catering purposes.
‘Muso’ is much more than the career and activities of a pianist. It is also a gripping and gritty thriller, an engaging love story and fascinating look behind the scenes of nightclub entertainment in 1970’s and 80’s Perth and London.
Join us for a presentation by the author of ‘The garden wanderer’. Margaret River local Julie Kinney will share her passion for exploring gardens, show the wonderful images from her book and talk about the publishing process. Devonshire tea will follow the talk and copies of the book will be available to purchase. Please rsvp by 7th October for catering. Phone: 9780 5600 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
