For years, the Mundaring Art Centre (MAC) has delivered art workshops aimed at improving the skills and enhancing the quality of life for residents in the Shire of Mundaring and surrounding areas. Since 2006 MAC has gone one step further to bring professional artists together with art enthusiasts of varying technical, intellectual and physical abilities in one inclusive program – the FUSION Art Project.
The FUSION exhibition caps a year of FUSION Art Project achievements, including a collaborative mural designed for the Bilgoman Pool bus shelter, a painting workshop held at Aboriginal aged day centre Moorditj Mia, and a large scale ephemeral art installation at Trek the Trail. The FUSION exhibition honours the diversity found in the community and in individual art practices. It celebrates the artistic achievements of aspiring and established artists who came together over the past year to learn from one another.
The exhibition highlights the brilliant, the humorous, and the sometimes surprising art created by FUSION participants. With the supportive guidance of the workshop facilitators, over 500 people (with more than half identifying as having a disability) painted, felted, sculpted, constructed, drew, stitched, printed and designed their way through a year’s worth of workshops.
The FUSION exhibition gives its audience a chance to experience this amazing creative journey which is proudly supported by National Disability Insurance Agency, Mundaring Arts Centre, DADAA WA, Dept of Culture and the Arts and Shire of Mundaring.
This exhibition is free to attend at Mundaring Arts Centre (7190 Great Eastern Highway, Mundaring) from 11am on Saturday 28 May until 3pm on Sunday 26 June. Visit the Mundaring Arts Centre website and follow the Mundaring Arts Centre on Facebook for further information.
