Art of the Threatened Species: call for materials

Art of the Threatened Species artist Kelly Leonard is calling for environmental/political t-shirts to be donated for artwork being developed about the endangered Regent Honeyeater bird. We are sure that a quick look in your local opportunity shop would be much appreciated; here is Kelly’s request:

Dear artists/activists,

Please consider sending me your worn yellow, black or white slogan t-shirts to be recycled into artwork. In return, you will receive unique art postcard updates from me and satisfaction from participating in artwork about this elusive, nomadic and critically endangered bird.

The project, curated by Dr Greg Pritchard, is part of a group exhibition about highlighting our endangered species. It is a collaboration between the Office of Environment & Heritage, Create NSW and Orana Arts as part of the NSW government’s Saving Our Species program. The exhibition will be shown in 2019 at the Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo. Other contributing artists are: Nicola Mason, Cathy Franzi, Amanda Stuart, Anna Glynn, Bec Selleck, Bridget Nicholson, Vicki Luke, Tullulah Cunningham, Alison Clouston, Peter Boyd, Peter Dalmazzo.

Please email me for postage or drop-off details: kellyleonard@me.com

In gratitude,

Kelly Leonard
