Dear Art Lovers,
As I write this newsletter, morning dew drips off the leaves outside my window. So beautiful to see as the paddocks are very dry now - we are in the throes of a 'green drought'.
Ten years ago we were in a much more threatening position with the onslaught of the Black Saturday Bushfires which were burning across the state of Victoria (and just down the road). My heart goes out to anyone and everyone who was involved and personally affected...
The experience ignited an artistic project titled 'Fields of View'. A small group of passionate artists in Gippsland collaborated, created and toured with an exhibition of the resulting work. I was honoured to work with Werner & Ursula Theinert who were directly impacted by the fires in Callignee, Peter Biram, and Leonie Ryan.
