NERAM - Bimblebox: art – science - nature


Bimblebox: art – science - nature is an exhibition that showcases artists interpretations of the
Bimblebox Nature Refuge which is currently under threat from coal mining.
The Bimblebox Nature Refuge in Central Queensland has been the site of a number of artist’s
camps where participants have explored its environmental, social and scientific significance.
The exhibition will be opening at the New England Regional Art Museum at 6.00pm on Friday 5
February and will be on show until Sunday 24 April 2016.
Bimblebox: art – science - nature explores the creative response to artist’s experience of this
unique and threatened environment and includes the work of a number of contemporary artists
including Alison Clouston and Boyd, Pamela Croft, Donna Davis, Emma Lindsay, Fiona
MacDonald, Glenda Orr, Luke Roberts and Shayna Wells.
Inspired by the unique ark of life found at the Bimblebox Nature Refuge, this group of artists
camped on the reserve documenting, drawing and recording in order to capture the
environmental, social and scientific significance of this unique landscape. Artists have also
drawn inspiration from scientific research and historical texts.
