‘We All Sleep’ artwork exhibition comes to Wanneroo

Published Friday, 21st July 2017

The ‘We All Sleep’ original artworks will be exhibited at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre to the delight of the City of Wanneroo and Fremantle Press.

We all sleep

Acclaimed mother and son team Sally Morgan and Ezekiel Kwaymullina take readers on a journey through a typical Australian day in the bush and celebrate the connection between people and animals using lyrical language and opulent colour.

Beginning at sunrise and ending with starlight, the reader observes Australian flora and fauna appearing at their ideal time of day.

The exhibition of original artworks from the book runs from 28 July to 26 August upstairs in the Conference Room at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre.

To coincide with this beautiful exhibition as well as Book Week 2017, the Wanneroo Library will be running a series of free workshops for school groups.

The workshops are aimed at years 1 to 6 and will link with Book Week and National Science week, and offer the opportunity to learn art techniques and hear traditional Aboriginal storytelling.

Literacy teaching notes are also available for We All Sleep with cross-curricular links to art, science and sustainability.

To register your interest, please email: julianne.mackay@wanneroo.wa.gov.au or phone 9405 5920.
