About

Help us keep the shorebirds coming!

Join artists from the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery paint shorebirds to create a big flock. The flock will then be seen all around the Coffs Harbour area to promote the Overwintering Exhibition that highlights the plight of our precious shorebirds.

With generous support from our partners The Mens Shed Coffs Harbour.

The Overwintering Project
Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery
Dec 6 - 8 Feb
Migratory shorebirds 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. 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 Overwintering Project exhibition features printmaking, artists’ books and sculpture, including:

The Overwintering Project portfolio of prints – 240 prints by artists from around Australia

Steamroller prints by Woolgoolga and Toormina High School students

Wall of Wings participatory art project

10 artist books by BookArtObject international artist book collective

Winners of our primary school art competition

Transmigration shearwater sculptures by Jeremy Sheehan
