"Visions of the Cosmos" Exhibition Kicks Off Solar Eclipse Festivities in Carnarvon

The official Opening Event of the Visions of the Cosmos exhibition and book launch took place on Friday 14th April 2023, at the Shire of Carnarvon Library and Art Gallery. Attended by approximately 80 visitors and guests, the opening commenced the five-week exhibition period which runs from 14th April to 20th May 2023.


Guests were treated to a superb selection of astro-landscape and deep-space astrophotos by eleven leading Western Australian astrophotographers. The exhibition is dedicated to the memory of the master Japanese astrophotographer, Akira Fujii (1941 - 2022) and features two superb images by the master himself. 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. 


Accompanying the exhibition is the same-titled book Visions of the Cosmos which presents superb astro-landscape images from more than twenty key locations, documented by nine of Western Australia's most talented astrophotographers.  The book is available for purchase at the art gallery throughout the exhibition period or online at the Celestial Visions Store: www.celestialvisions.com.au/store
