Welcome to Pete's Wildlife Art Web site

Wild Palette and Wildlife Art in focus

 

Pete has taken up the role of Senior Art Advisor of the Art Advisory Council to the Board of The WAMA Foundation. This is the overseeing body for the development of  The Wildlife Art Museum of Australia.

A visionary project, it is envisaged this Museum will be built on a parcel of land near Halls Gap in the Grampian Ranges, west of Melbourne, Victoria.

The 15 hectares will be landscaped with iconic, indigenous flora, and the wetland will be developed in an environmental and sustainable manner, with advice and support from the Royal Botanical Gardens Cranbourne. The vision foresees designed buildings will house, a gallery space for visiting exhibitions from Australia and overseas and other temporary exhibitions, archival rooms and library, an auditorium and support facilities. A curated permanent collection will be acquired and displayed through time. There  will be  educational and informative areas, and conference facilities. Artists workshops will also be available.

The permanent art collection will be professionally curated to grow and hold important and influential art work from the earliest records of wildlife art in caves with a golden thread running through the centuries of mans existence to the present day. Other temporary collections will be exhibited in the visiting gallery space.

The whole project will become an iconic tourist destination for people to learn not only about art, but also about the locality with its indigenous flora and fauna, conservation and environmental  issues. They will be able to meet local, national and international artists working on site. Artists too will be inspired by each other, and find the ambience to give of their best.

 Much support has already flowed in from artists, galleries and interested parties, both in Australia and from overseas, and a National Launch was held at Sofitel Melbourne this October 2014.
