The FOBIF exhibition at Newstead Arts Hub will be running this Saturday, Sunday and Monday (Labour Day). The opening hours for Saturday and Sunday are 10 am to 4 pm. On Monday we will begin taking down the show at 2.30 pm to allow for people to pick up purchased photos. We will contact people before Monday to let them know if their photo will be ready by this time..
Our new book Responding to Country: Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests 1998-2023 will be available for sale at the Hub. This 70 page catalogue has 25 photos with accompanying text by members and supporters, historical and geology sections, children’s art, and an essay by Alex Panelli, Of people and a forest – some personal reflections. The first few paragraphs of Alex’s essay can be viewed here and the book’s contents page here.
You can order Responding to Country on this site through Paypal or bank transfer for $15 plus $3 postage. It is also available at Stoneman’s Bookroom, the Castlemaine Visitor Information Centre and Bookish in Bendigo.
