The large scale prints created on the day are from lino cuts made by students at Woolgoolga High School and Toormina High School. Students have been working with local artists over October and November to raise awareness about the migratory shorebirds who make their home on the Coffs Coast over summer. These large scale prints will form part of The Overwintering Project in the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery from December 6 - 1 February, 2020.
THE FLOCK - SAWTELL SUMMER SESSIONS
HELP to 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 the precious shorebirds. The Overwintering Project will be held December 6 to February 8. 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
