This photograph of the dry lake bed at Joondalup, Western Australia, taken by local artist, Lyn Franke (2010) inspired the design of a wall-hanging (shown below) created as a community project by the Wanneroo Rug Makers.
Now part of the Wanneroo City Art Collection, this creation was displayed in “Within These Walls Exhibition”; a combined exhibition collated by the Wanneroo Museum and Art Collections at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre’s Gallery from 14 December 2013 to 2 February 2014.
Described on the city’s website as, “an innovative and quirky exhibition, showcasing rarely seen artefacts from the Museum’s collection juxtaposed and harmonised with art works from the City’s Art collection. A series of thematic spaces, dedicated to texture, the natural elements, machinery, still life and pop art.”
