About

Please join us in the gallery for the official opening of The Overwintering Project.

The Overwintering Project is a multidisciplinary, environmental art project that brings together artists, local high school students, scientists, birders and poets to address environmental impacts on migratory shorebirds and their habitats, including special places here on the Coffs Coast.

The Coffs Harbour region is a significant spot for migratory shorebirds that connect the world; their annual migration journeys bind sky, land and sea into a meaningful whole. Yet, migratory shorebirds are the most endangered but possibly least known group of birds. This exhibition highlights the plight of these birds, showcasing their journey through printmaking, artists’ books and sculpture.

 

All welcome, free entry – please RSVP

 

This project is supported by Create NSW’s Audience Development Fund, a devolved funding program administered by Museums & Galleries of NSW on behalf of the NSW Government.
