Fremantle artist Jo Darvall has built an enviable reputation for creating works of timeless beauty which reinterpret historical narratives.

“Art and storytelling are intrinsically linked to my practice. I have to be inspired – to love the story and feel the urgent need to tell everyone about it.” Jo Darvall

Drawing inspiration from the style and palette of renowned West Austalian artist Kathleen O’Connor (1876-1968) and the history of her father C.Y. O’Connor (1843-1902), the visionary engineer responsible for the construction of the Mundaring Weir and the Golden Pipeline from Mundaring to Kalgoorlie, this exhibition is held in conjunction with the 2018 National Trust Heritage Festival.

Artworks by Darvall will be exhibited at the Mundaring Weir No 1 Pump Station (Mundaring Weir Rd, Mundaring, open Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays 12-4pm). The artist will also host a long table lunch on 22 April at the Mundaring Weir Hotel (corner Mundaring Weir Rd and Hall Rd, Mundaring, 11am – 4:30pm) featuring local historians, artists and poets.
