Like moths to a flame, art-lovers will be drawn to Oak Hill Gallery this month when The Moth Migration Project alights on our shores. Founded by New York artist Hilary Lorenz in 2016, the project is a crowd-sourced exhibition of more than 20,000 hand-printed, drawn and cut-paper moths from artists in 26 countries.
According to the project’s website: “Through social media and personal relationships, the moths became a symbol of community as the project exploded with thousands of submissions, satellite exhibitions, printmaking workshops, school art projects and family and community gatherings. The MMP creates a spirit more significant than any single community by fostering authentic connections and engaging public participation through a synergy of shared experience and embracing mutual respect for personal uniqueness and creativity.”
The exhibition will be launched on Sunday, September 1, between 2-4pm and continues until October 3. The gallery is open daily from 11am-4pm. For more information, phone the gallery on 5973 4299 or email [email protected], and find out more about the project at www.mothmigrationproject.net
