SEEKING PHOTOGRAPHS of distinctive Illawarra Flora 

The ARThitects are restarting work on their large-scale art project The Illawarra Pavilion after the COVID-19 lockdowns and are again reaching out to the Wollongong and wider Illawarra community. We are seeking assistance anew from the friends of WAG to help us identify and photograph the best examples of the region’s iconic Illawarra Flame Tree in full flower. As you are out and about enjoying the late Spring weather 

The ARTitects are asking you to keep a look out for the best of the regions celebrated Illawarra Flame trees as they show off their magnificent crown of characteristic bright scarlet flowers. We would like to ask that you pause a moment to make note of its precise street address and take a quick photograph of the tree and email it to us 

Alternatively you can send the photograph and full street address to 0404 699051. If it is what we are looking for we will drive out to photograph it with a high-resolution camera and professionally photograph it for a major artwork to be included for our forthcoming exhibition The Illawarra Pavilion which will open at the Wollongong Art Gallery in February 2022. We are particularly interested if you know of any Illawarra Flame trees and Jacaranda trees flowering side by side. 

If the Illawarra Flame tree you informed us about is included in our artwork, we will pay you a spotter’s fee of $100.00 and you will be acknowledged in the exhibition catalogue. We look forward to hearing from you. Below are some examples of what we are looking for
