Exhibition Dates: 6 – 24 July 2022
10am – 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday
A South Coast response to the Black Summer Fires of 2019/2020.
Seven female artists from the Eurobodalla region of New South Wales share their personal creative responses of experiencing the devastating fire event and its aftermath – capturing elements of regeneration, hope, resilience and collaborative healing, with a stark reminder of the fragility of our enviro-human co-existence and the urgency to enact our environmental responsibilities.
Collectively, through painting, printmaking, sculpture, glass and installation works, the multi-generational, Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists invite viewers to experience the region’s emergence from the ashscape – to celebrate the surprising beauty of revival on the most infinitesimal scale, whilst simultaneously grappling with the reality of our personal and environmental vulnerabilities.
Featuring works by Walbunja/Ngarigo Cheryl Davison-Overton, Mirabel Fitzgerald, Jennifer Hawkins, Julie Mia Holmes, Raewyn Lawrence, Amy Schleif and Jo Victoria. Curated by Nicole Wallace, Co-Director of White Rhino Artspace.
