Artwork by Mark Ward titled Oyster catchers and heron and Gillian Wilde titled Homecoming banner image

Art exhibition - Ward and Wilde - Birds of a Feather


Where: Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, corner Vulcan Street and Campbell Street, Moruya

Opening hours: Daily, 10am – 4pm

This exhibition presents the work of two artists, Mark Ward and Gillian Wilde, responding to their passionate interest in birds. The work is connected thematically although has wonderfully diverse approaches.

There is also an element of whimsy, which allows further reflection on our appreciation of birds at this time of environmental change.

Mark Ward’s work compromises of oil painting, assemblage, lino-cut print and free-standing sculpture. Gillian Wilde’s bold engaging images on paper are an exploration of birds through hand-dyed ink paper collage and watercolour.

Artist profiles

Both artists have been friends of the Bas for many years. Ward was part of the first project under the banner Bas About Town - Makers and Spacers project and W´╗┐ilde was the 2022 Eurobodalla Prize Winner as part of the Basil Sellers Art Prize.
