Seven Forms (Collie’22) @ Collie Art Gallery
Aug 15 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Seven Forms (Collie'22) @ Collie Art Gallery

Seven artists observe layers of meaning attached to sites and artifacts encountered in the Collie region. They notice the mapping and movement of land, water and fauna as cultural formations echoed in processes of alteration in their own printmaking, drawing, and shaping of clay.

Seven Forms offers viewers an altered way of seeing familiar places and things. The artists create work inspired by Collie while bringing to the task their ability to produce material formations that connect industrial culture and the physical world. This is done in ways that resonate with concern at environmental disruption and optimism at opportunity for change.

The exhibition, sponsored by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, includes a series of workshops and artist/curator talks as the means of engagement with the local community.

Collie to Donnybrook and return Cycle Classic @ Collie
Aug 20 all-day

This event is part of the Kaya Collie celebrations.

The race, which began in 1925, is the only true remaining handicap event in WA. It is steeped in tradition and is the premier road race on the Western Australian cycling calendar.

The handicap format gives everyone a chance to get to the finish line first.

The historic race begins in the heart of town on Throssell Street, opposite the Crown Hotel at 12.00pm. The riders will head through hilly terrain towards Mumballup for 21km before turning and heading towards the township of Donnybrook. This is the halfway point. Riders then turn and return back to Mumballup. The last 21km of the course is very arduous through the hills to the finish line in the main street of Collie. The riders will complete 104 kms in total.
