Box Gallery, Manning

At the beginning of 2017 ten permanent public exhibition boxes were installed at the new Manning Community Centre, to provide a public display space to showcase local artists, community groups or collaborations between the two.

Current Exhibition

On display from 6 August – 26 November 2021, Ex-Bo 2021

In June and July 2021, Manning community members participated in four workshops to craft small objects which could be transformed into larger art pieces. 

Ryan Hughes ran a workshop in which participants crafted paper craft native flowers, Samantha Hughes facilitated stamp and print making of native flora and fauna, and Kirilee Lennerts hosted two drop-in creator space sessions in which community members made pom-poms, added to the community weaving looms, experimented with watercolours, and crafted paper feathers.

After the workshops, library staff combined the individual pieces to create ten artworks representative of the seasonal changes from August to November (Djilba to Kambarang in the Noongar six seasonal calendar).
