Flotsam + Jetsam Exhibition
We believe that creative expression is one of the most sincere and impactful ways to inspire others. Through Flotsam + Jetsam we aim to inspire others to not only connect with the beauty of the natural world but find compassion for it. It is through this connection and love of the planet that we can protect it.
Flotsam and Jetsam art exhibition uniquely intertwines the creative art making of the local community and a deep passion to protect and preserve the Abrolhos Islands, home to our Pearl Farm.
Flotsam and Jetsam by Latitude Jewellers is a truly supported community art exhibition. Following the Clean Up, people come from near and far to select the materials that inspire them. Artists enter their works and winners are announced at a prestigious art exhibition opening night.
With around 100 entries this is a truly unique exhibition that has a strong sustainability message and aims to drive awareness of our environmental responsibility to protect and preserve the Abrolhos Islands and our beautiful planet.
2023 Flotsam + Jetsam Theme is ‘Tribute to the Animal Kingdom’.
Animals from the beginning of time have been a fascination for us. Their existence has been shaped through our love of nature and our neglect of it. We draw inspiration from their characters and colours and find love with them by our side.
This year we wish to pay tribute to the animal kingdom, all that have lived on this earth, in our seas and in our dreams. From the tiny fish or butterfly to the elephant and dragon. They offer a unique significance for all of us, farm or family, we share a deeper bond. We invite you to be a part of our dream, from ocean debris to inspiring art, from neglect to protect.
Come join our journey. Please note that artist may create ANY piece of artwork using Flotsam + Jetsam, whether they have used the theme as an inspiration or not. In the past, our artists have loved a theme but we encourage ‘freedom to create’ and welcome all entries. The awards for the ‘Flotsam + Jestsam Recycling Award’ and ‘Artist View Award’ are based on the theme. All other awards are open to all entries.
