Busselton’s ArtGeo Cultural Complex is reopening tomorrow.

In it’s 40th year as an arts hub, ArtGeo is championing local artists with the free Inclusive Excellence: Regional Series1 exhibition showcasing several artists and mediums.

The array of local talent includes Alice Alder’s collection, Illuminated Portals, which uses light to define the raw bone work of the earth in oils.

Print makers Lynne Mitchell and Denise Gillies present a collaborative exhibition with poet Rose van Son, where art interprets poetry and poetry interprets art.

The Busselton Woodturners will display their unique pieces and Robin Bigwood is exhibiting nature-inspired abstracts in the Bond Store.

ArtGeo curator Sharon Williams said in an effort to reinvigorate the arts and support regional artists, ArtGeo took the unprecedented move to offer exhibition spaces free for the next five months.

“The result is the Inclusive Excellence series of four exhibitions, offering a brief snapshot from the region,” she said.

ArtGeo coordinator John Reid encouraged a visit to the Old Courthouse which has had a face lift for its 160th anniversary.

The ArtGeo Cultural Complex is open daily from 10am to 4pm with free entry.
