Official opening event
Official Opening Event of the "Visions of the Cosmos" exhibition and book launch took place on Friday 14 April 2023, at the Carnarvon Library and Art Gallery. Attended by visitors and guests, the opening commenced the five week exhibition showing (14 April to 20 May 2023). Guests were treated to a superb selection of astro-landscape and deep-space astrophotos by 11 leading Western Australian astrophotographers. The exhibition is dedicated to the memory of the master Japanese astrophotographer, Akira Fujii (1941 - 2022). The exhibition also features two superb images by Akira Fujii. Exhibition videos include "Under the Milky Way" featuring Ivan Gian-Piero's version of this much loved Australian classic, and an exotic new instrumental work by Rupert Guenther, specially commissioned for the exhibition. The "Visions of the Cosmos" exhibition was four years in the making, with first discussions about the idea beginning in 2019, prior to COVID. The exhibition was scheduled to coincide with the 20 April 2023 total solar eclipse, and to run for five weeks, 14 April to 20 May 2023. The five week showing of the exhibition provides visitors with a great opportunity to experience superb Western Australian astrophotography.
