About this event

Manning Regional Gallery is proud to present ZOONOSES, a major touring exhibition showcasing artworks by Dr Nicola Hooper.

Dr Nicola Hooper has taken the darker side of nature and turned it into exquisite, thought-provoking art.

Using a copy of a fly lithograph featured in Nicola’s artwork, you will colour and construct a fly sculpture of your very own. Add transparent wings and imagine shooing it away!

Drop into the Gallery's MAKE-it space and create your masterpiece and contribute it to our exhibition activity space or take it home to display. 

Workshop suitable for children, teens and adults. 


Time | Saturday 15 July to 26 August 2023. 

Venue | Manning Regional Gallery
