Abundance is both the title and theme of our most recent exhibition at the Creative Space, North Curl Curl in October 2017. 23 members of A&SC displayed art works. Each artist responded to this theme in their own way. However, since we supported OzHarvest, it was particularly relevant to explore the implications of over and under abundance in our society. Abundance was curated by Bronwen Dugan.
The exhibition ran from Wednesday 18th to Sunday 29th October 2017. The Opening Night was on 20th October 6:00 - 8:00pm.
Opening hours: Monday - Sunday 10:00am - 4:00pm
