Williams River - Juliet Fowler-Smith

Paraphrase from March 2009 edition of Artsbark (Arts Upper Hunter)

In pursuit of contemporary expression, artist and long time resident of the Williams Valley, Juliet Fowler Smith, has rounded up a group of 10 feisty artists to spend time in the proposed inundation zone for the Tillegra Dam. The group comes from near and far and all of the artists are interested in exploring the emotional effects brought about by significant change to our environment. What are we doing to ourselves when we attempt to control, dictate and manipulate? This group of artists will be spending time in the Valley, not only immersing themselves in the physical but also hanging out with the locals, those who are part of the landscape.

Work produced will be exhibited in venues currently being negotiated

Artists in the project.
Suzanne Bartos, Neil Berecry-Brown, Bonita Ely, Juliet Fowler-Smith, Noelene Lucas, Bridget Nicholson, Margaret Roberts, Toni Warburton, David Watson
