The Mechanics Institute in Moruya will play host to a special exhibition of artworks commemorating the two-year anniversary of the horrific Black Summer Bushfires.
'Firestorm', presented by the Lorum Artis group, will run from January 15 to January 23 from 10am-4pm.
"Exhibiting artists explore their own personal stories of recovery through paint, sculpture, textile and print," a spokesperson from Lorum Artis said.
"The artists delver into a range of themes including connecting or disconnection with nature, sensory experiences, re-imagining the landscape, security, and regrowth."
'Firestorm' will feature works by Andrea Warren, Ann Espinoza, Cheryl Plowman, Esther Krimancic, Esther Workman, Geoffrey Odgers, J Gallagher, Kareli, Mandy Marks Bennett, Trish Ellis, Cathie Griffith, and Susan Nader.
The exhibition will also hold a series of 'creative workshops' presented by Andrea Warren, Kim Edgar-Lane, and Esther Workman.
"Unfortunately the official exhibition opening that was scheduled to be opened by Trish Ellis on Friday, January 14, at 5pm has been cancelled due to COVID restrictions," the spokesperson said.
"A percentage of sales will be donated to the firesticks alliance to help aid in the pursuit of cultural burning."
The Mechanics Institute can be found on Page Street, Moruya.
