THE FLYWAY PRINT EXCHANGE EXHIBITION
10th MARCH - 11th JUNE 2018
An exhibition of prints by 20 artists from 9 countries inspired by the journeys of 5 million birds along what is known as the Flyway route from Australia and New Zealand to the Arctic breeding grounds.
Every year, in the Northern winter, some three-dozen species of migratory birds leave their breeding grounds in the Arctic and fly10,000 kilometers to Australia and New Zealand to feed. Then, a few months later, the birds—curlews, godwits, snipes, stilts, stints, and others—fly all the way back again. These birds rest along the New South Wales coast at locations such as the important Shoalhaven Heads and Lake Wollumboola sites.
During the exhibition we will be presenting: print-making workshops with Kate Gorringe-Smith, embroidery workshops with Leslie Lockwood, and talks organised by Birdlife Shoalhaven. (see below)
