About

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

 

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.
