What Lies Beneath

“There is no dead matter, lifelessness is only a disguise behind which hides unknown forms of life” - Bruno Schultz

Eco-printing engages the pigments in leaves, natural fibres, metal and heat to create prints and imagery that cannot be orchestrated or controlled – as Rebecca Funk describes: 'this is a dance with Nature herself where we follow Her lead…'

Emerging from a series of workshops lead by local artist Jacqui Grace and soul crafter Rebecca Funk, the cohort of makers will exhibit new eco-printing based work developed from an exploration of creative process where artist, matter and cosmos are co-constructors of meaning, beauty, sacredness, art and chaos.

Dynamics between structure and emergence, individual work and collaboration, the stagnant and the ephemeral, process and outcome culminate in an exhibition which will showcase the generative process of eco-printing as we explore what lies beneath the leaf, and these constructs.

Amy Laker Bruni
Rainbow Rain and Mythical Creatures


Amy Laker Bruni is a Resident Artist at Leaf Studios, Kallista and creator & designer of label Lillbeart.

Amy’s motto is, “Life is all about having FUN…”
And laughing. Dreaming. Exploring. Feeling. Creating. Experimenting. Challenging. Enjoying.

"As adults sometimes those moments are far and few between, and it is not until we have children come into our lives that we remember how to simply be and feel the purity of life again. Those fleeting moments of joy and delight or the capacity to envelope oneself in sensation allows the connection to our inner child, or for the young to express on an emotional level how visually and textually their senses are stimulated.

My leaf rainbow with rainbow rain aims for you to discover the fun of immersing yourself in a hyperreal magical place. Walk through, run through, pause in the middle, close your eyes, run your hands around, feel the ‘rain’ on your face." Amy Laker Bruni

St Joseph’s College presents:

The Addams Family

The Addams Family Musical is based on the classic cartoon characters and the beloved television series and film franchise that has become a strange part of our culture.  This new story takes a familiar situation and turns it on its ear as Wednesday invites her normal boyfriend and his normal parents to dinner where the young couple hopes to announce their engagement to both sets of parents.

It is a love story, but not a romance.  Gomez loves Morticia, Wednesday loves Lucas, Uncle Fester loves the Moon and Cousin It steals a kiss from a fetching tassel.  But of course, nothing with the Addams Family, or love for that matter, is simple.  Thank goodness the Addams Family can make all the bumps and twists in the road hilarious!

First Performed on Broadway in 2010 this musical has become a firm favourite in the musical theatre repertoire.  With music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa the show includes full-scale song and dance numbers like ‘One Normal Night’, ‘When You’re an Addams’ and ‘Full Disclosure’. The Addams family musical is a jewel box of unexpected delights, surprises, enchanted costumes, great songs and a marvellous cast that would love to entertain your family.

Warning:  Smoke effects used during the performance

Run Time - 165 Minutes including 20min Interval | Recommended for Ages 12+

Masters of Aboriginal Contemporary Art

Emily Kame Kngwarreye


A survey exhibition of one of the Western Desert art movement’s most important artists Emily Kame Kngwarreye.

Credited with taking Australian indigenous art to the world ‘Emily’ is one of our most iconic and collectable painters. An Anmatyerre elder, keeper of the Alhalkere Women's Dreaming stories, she was in in her 70’s before she began capturing this deeply significant cultural heritage on canvas.

This exhibition is part of Burrinja's Masters of Aboriginal Contemporary Art series which presents an intriguing portrait of Australia’s most revered Aboriginal and contemporary artists.

“Kngwarreye's prominence is no overnight sensation; it finds its roots in a lifetime of ritual and artistic activity. Her energetic paintings are a response to the land of her birth, Alhalkere, north of Alice Springs …  the contours of the landscape, the cycles of seasons, the parched land, the flow of flooding waters and sweeping rains, the patterns of seeds and the shape of plants, and the spiritual forces which imbue the country. Kngwarreye's vision of the land is unique; her paintings challenge the way we look at art by Aboriginal Australians” Wally Caruana, National Gallery of Australia

‘Few artists have painted the country like she has, with an ability to penetrate its very soul'. -Margo Neale, curator of her 1998 retrospective exhibition

Wominjeka: A New Beginning

Wominjeka: A New Beginning celebrates 30 years of the Koorie Heritage Trust. This project highlights cultural continuities alongside new modes of creative practice in the work of five cross-generational early career artists; Georgia MacGuire, Aunty Marlene Gilson, Mitch Mahoney, Josh Muir and Raymond Young.

Each of the participating artists has developed new work in dialogue with the Trust’s significant collections of objects, artworks, archives and oral histories – each identifying objects and artifacts that share or spark a connection with their own artistic practice, personal or cultural enquiry. Over a three-month period the artists worked alongside senior mentors; Maree Clarke, Lee Darroch, Ray Thomas and Peter Waples-Crowe to explore the Trust’s Collections and to develop new works in dialogue with the past.

The exhibition presents this new work alongside the objects of inspiration from the Trust’s collection. Exhibited works utilise a broad array of media, materials and techniques including; painting, animal skin cloaks and textiles, bark and feather flowers, clay shields and digital prints.

Exhibition coordinator: Jan Duffy,  Koorie Heritage Trust
