Exhibition Dates: 6 to 24 July 2022

A Far 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.

Performing live at the Opening Event, visitors will be treated to a welcome and fire song, Ganbi, performed in language by five members of the Djinama Yilaga Choir, led by exhibiting artist Walbunja/Ngarigo Cheryl Overton-Davison.
