William Spiers is inspired by our natural surroundings. In this contemplative and sometimes comical exhibition, the accomplished Bundaberg artist aims to instil in the viewer an awareness of the wonders that surround us all the time.

The exhibition examines the way in which it is often easy to take for granted the uniqueness of Australia’s landscape and wildlife, in which birds feature prominently. To William, the warbling magpie is quintessentially Australian. Following on from ‘Wanderings’, his exhibition of paintings at the School of Arts, the works in this new collection display William’s feeling for acrylic, gouache, ink, charcoal and other mixed media, mostly on paper.
