Collaboration WA Inc. was formed in early 2008 by a small group of wood artists: Jack deVos, Gordon Ward, Toni Wilson, Neil Turner, Vaughn Richmond and Robert Jones, with the intent of lifting the profile of wood art in Western Australia. With this in mind, they set about organising a collaborative workshop where woodworkers with various talents and skills, from all over Australia, could work together on shared projects in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The emphasis was to be enjoyment and adventure, rather than staying within a comfort zone. Collaboration WA also envisaged inviting artists from other disciplines: painters, jewellers, metalworkers and others to work with them on creating new and interesting work which would have been impossible on their own.

To help raise the the profile of wood art, Collaboration WA decided to approach the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery, suggesting they hold an exhibition at the gallery to coincide with the workshop. BRAG was enthusiastic to be involved, and  together  the  Coast  to  Coast  exhibition  first  opened in May 2009.

This biennial exhibition continues to attract artists from across Australia and overseas, both involved in workshops and contributing works.
