Marian Drew at McClelland Gallery

Photographic works by Marian Drew are being exhibited in AIR BORN, a group exhibition at McClelland Gallery + Sculpture Park opening this Saturday 22 June.

AIR BORN brings together a vibrant collection of 19 contemporary artists' work who through their varying artistic disciplines are inspired by birds, either as subject or who emulate through their work aspects of avian habitats and rituals.

Birds have played a vivid role in the conceptual and spiritual life of many cultures. AIR BORN inspires an exploration of these cultural traditions and symbology by unravelling varying ideas surrounding the bird and our interaction with them. The themes presented in these works traverse art and cultural history as well as ideas of adornment, volatility, migration, environment, place and identity.
