Our FOBIF show now named Responding to Country: Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests 1998-2023 will be opened by natural historian and environmental photographer Alison Pouliot on Saturday, February 25 at 10.30am at the Newstead Arts Hub. It will run for 3 weekends (February 25 & 26, March 4 & 5, 11 & 12) and Labour Day (March 13). Gallery opening hours are 10am to 4pm.
The show will include 20 photos with accompanying text by FOBIF members and supporters, children’s art from Chewton Primary School, FOBIF historical information, and geology exhibits. Three of the founding members of FOBIF, Marie Jones, Phil Ingelmells and Tami McVicar have been involved in the preparation of this show. Phil has written this article about the formation of FOBIF.
