Artists’ Voices from Shire of Toodyay’s Art Collection 
Sunday 30th April 2017


The inspiration behind the creation of many of the Shire of Toodyay's artworks is often hidden, as are the works themselves. During this event the artworks and the artists' voices are to be re-united in our newly expanded public venue, the Wicklow Shearing Shed.
The Shire of Toodyay’s art collection will be exhibited for one day only. Take the opportunity to view these artworks, many of which are not normally on display in public areas.
Hear live interviews with the artists during the day, including Margot Watkins and Greg Warburton, who will share their inspiration behind the creation of their works.

Art historian and heritage consultant Robyn Taylor will open the exhibition.
A free in-depth catalogue will be available on the day.

Comfortable shoes recommended as there are some uneven surfaces around the venue.
