50 Shades of Green… An exhibition by Maya Harrison

5th May 2015 - 7th Jun 2015

Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens Lagoons Gallery:

Fifty Shades of Green. "To me, the colour green represents nature, growth and the plant world. Plants are not all the same green colour, nor are the small green creatures that inhabit them. Shades of green can be found throughout the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens, in my backyard and in our own bush property and this is where inspiration for the artworks began."

The '50 Shades of Green' exhibition includes one installation that is really 50 small artworks combined and yes, there will be 50 shades of green within it. The installation and other artworks will include acrylics, papermaking, photography, collage, weaving and textiles and found objects from nature. Look out for some other green quirky objects too.
