July 8, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - August 2, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

DSC02877Photographer Matt Newton with Scientist Dr Rachael Alderman and Ceramicist Eve Howard 

Opening 5.30pm 8 July – Continuing until 2 August

Wild Island is excited to showcase photographer Matthew Newton’s and ceramicist Eve Howard’s artistic response to a unique Tasmanian species, and present scientific knowledge and perspectives from the dedicated biologists working to understand and protect this iconic species. This exhibition highlights what can be achieved when art and science work together to communicate for a cause. The aim of the ‘Albatross’ exhibition is to raise awareness and understanding of Tasmania’s own albatross. Through the sharing of our knowledge and our artistic perspectives of the species, it is hoped that the exhibition’s audience become advocates for the Shy Albatross and active supporters of conservation efforts.
