Earth Canvas

Saturday 24 October 2020 - Sunday 7 February 2021

Albury LibraryMuseum

The Earth Canvas exhibition displays works by leading contemporary artists, developed in response to regenerative farming properties situated between the Murray and Murrumbidgee rivers in southern NSW. Looking beyond limiting the impact of industrial agriculture, these farmers actively work to rehabilitate the land and nurture healthy ecosystems.

Inspired by their immersive contact with both the farmer and the landscape, the artists reveal a mutual creativity, appreciation and understanding of the natural forces that sustain us.

Featuring works by Rosalind Atkins, Jenny Bell, Jo Davenport, Janet Laurence, Tony Nott, Idris Murphy and John Wolseley.

Contemporary artists exploring the landscape and the theme of regenerative farming

Earth Canvas explores the experiences of both the regenerative farmer and the artist, their respective engagement with the land and their vision for a healthier world.
