Have you got a soft spot for Mother Nature? Ever dreamt of a life lived under the sea?

Vera Möller's latest exhibition A Thousand Tides takes you into an unknown local environment with beautiful colours and patterns reflecting the fauna, flora and terrain of the coast of Western Port Bay. Be mesmerised by Möller's art as it blurs the real with the imagined. 


Listen to Vera talk about her latest exhibition on Radio 3CR's Out of the Blue program.

The sculptures featured in A Thousand Tides have been inspired by the sea grasses, nudibranchs, sea slugs and other marine invertibrets that call Western Port Bay home. The Underwater Creatures Lab has been created as a very special feature within Vera Möller's exhibition. It provides a creative space for children - and adults - to create their very own creature using a bit of plasticine and a lot of imagination. What other creatures could live in western port bay? Let's bring them to life!

Free for all in the Bunjil Place Gallery.
