Festival takes a walk on the wild side

THIS year’s Jervis Bay Art Group’s See Change winter arts festival will go wild.

One of the many great exhibitions is Rescued, featuring Warren Wilson’s stunning wildlife photography.

The exhibition has a slight twist.

“I was looking for something to do for See Change and originally I was going to take portraits of kangaroos – faces in the mob – but this was harder than I thought,” the Woollamia resident said.

“My partner Yolande Cozijn read a story in the South Coast Register about Wildlife Rescue South Coast holding a book sale and she said, ‘Why don’t you do something on rescued animals?’” he said.

So he got to work and has taken some great photos for the Rescued exhibition.

The exhibition features images of joeys, possums and other animals being held by wildlife rescue volunteers.

Rescued will open on Sunday, May 24 and run until Friday, July 4 at Jervis Bay Kiosk, Owen Street, Huskisson.

One of the images will be auctioned off with funds given to Wildlife Rescue South Coast.

Meanwhile, a new website has been designed for the festival. Visit www.seechangefestival.org.au; it’s packed full of information.

The festival starts on Friday, May 16 and most exhibitions run until the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.

Keep an eye out for more See Change stories in the South Coast Register and Shoalhaven & Nowra News.
