Discover the wonders of the natural world in Drawn to a cabinet of curiosities by Jennifer Keeler-Milne.

In this stunning exhibition of exquisite charcoal on paper drawings inspired by the Wunderkammer, Keeler-Milne explores the beauty of our world.

Curious people have always fathomed the intricacies and workings of the natural world.

The culture of collecting, classifying, and drawing natural specimens predates the naming of disciplines such as biology, science or art.

During the Renaissance collected specimens were assembled into rooms that were designed to evoke the spectacle and marvel of the natural world.

These designated spaces were called wonder-rooms (Wunderkammer) or cabinets of curiosities.

Cabinet of curiosities is a Glasshouse Port Macqurie Regional Gallery touring exhibition.
