Project Orang-utan – The Exhibition is a Fundraising Art Exhibition featuring artist from Australia Wide with the intention to raise awareness of the plight of the Orang-utans and their habitat and to raise much needed funding for the International Animal Rescue Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre in Ketapang Indonesian Borneo.
This exhibition will showcase a collection of artworks created by Australian Artists. Each artist has been paired with one of the Orang-utans currently in the Centre’s care, creating a body of work that expresses the unique personalities and idiosyncrasies of these beautiful primates reflected through the artists eye.
Each Piece has been donated by the artist to sell at one of our two shows to raise money for International Animal Rescue’s Orang-utan Centre in Ketapang Borneo. There are over 70 Artists contributing to the exhibition Names such as Peter Browne , Lisa Roet, Nathan Ferrlazzo, Carlos Barrios, Wendy Sharpe and the list goes on.
There are special guest speakers from BOS (Borneo Orangutan Survival Australia) AND TOP (The Orangutan Project).

Orangutans face many adversities we hope this exhibition is an innovative way to raise both much needed funding and also highlight some of the reasons why we have to fight so hard to keep the species from extinction. Each artwork will be accompanied by the orangutan’s story so you can learn the reason why that particular orangutan is at the Rehabilitation Centre. There will also be information leaflets from the BOS and TOP organizations.
The exhibition is free and open to the general public
