An exhibition exploring the diversity of ideas of people at Shepparton Access opened on Wednesday.

The Eco Images @ Sheppaccess exhibition at Riverlinks Eastbank explores the diversity of ideas around ecological sustainability, including imagery spanning natural environment, salvaging and reclaiming items from family homes and the use and reuse of natural fibres.

Shepparton Access Foundation trustee Andrew Galbraith congratulated the artists on their fine pieces of art.

‘‘It was a great success, the foyer was filled with Shepparton Access artists, family, carers, staff, Shepparton local artists and community members,’’ Mr Galbraith said.

Shepparton Access chief executive Wendy Shanks said the diverse selection of images and designs in the exhibition sought to capture a changing attitude in the community towards what was valued and had significance in our daily lives.

‘‘The exhibition explores the illustration and representation of the environment by seeking to understand our connection and inspiration towards ecological sustainability,’’ Ms Shanks said.

The Eco Images @ Sheppaccess exhibition builds on Shepparton Access’ EcoPark and Ecostore initiatives, which continue to encourage practical approaches to ecological sustainability.

Regional Arts Victoria partnerships director Liz Zito opened the show.

The Eco Images @ Sheppaccess exhibition at Riverlinks Eastbank is open in the foyer until June 10.
