Tuesday 29 May – Wednesday 26 June
The Gallery, St Kilda Town Hall

To mark Word Environment Day on June 6, the St Kilda Town Hall Gallery is presenting an exhibition featuring local artists whose art inspires care for our environment.

The exhibition will feature various art forms and works, presenting connections to our local environment and evoking sustainability in different ways including paintings, photography, video and sculpture.

The exhibition will run from 29 May to 26 June, with an official opening at Council’s Creative SustainAbility World Environment Day event on 6 June, 4.30pm to 7.30pm in the Auditorium, St Kilda Town Hall. The event celebrates the connections between sustainability and the arts with free workshops, Indigenous dance and performances with kids and elders, and more.

Mayor Cr Amanda Stevens says the aim of both the event and the exhibition is to showcase and celebrate local artists and artistic skills that inspire us to act on environmental issues. It is also about engaging the community creatively.

“World Environment Day is a great opportunity to promote increased community action in caring for our environment in a fun and creative way. For example, in the lead up to our Creative SustainAbility World Environment Day event on 6 June, local artists will yarn bomb trees, bike racks and handle bars outside the Town Hall, to grab the attention of passers-by and to spread the message around sustainable art,” she said.
