Visual Arts: Hearsay

8 Jul – 31 Aug @ Wanneroo Gallery, Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre ·
Presented by City of Wanneroo ·

Hearsay shares fireside tales; from the ghostly Alkimos wreck, big cat sightings and UFOs, to daredevil feats of the Birdman Rally and the adventures of Moondyne Joe. Set to the backdrop of the shipwreck coast and the Gnangara pines, and drawn from  the rich history of the Wanneroo region, this exhibition blurs the line between fact and fiction.
