Making Ground looks at artists from the Blue Mountains and surrounds who use locally-found natural materials as a key element of their artistic process. The resulting work is diverse and serves as a visual reminder of the rich plant life and varied terrain occurring within the Greater Blue Mountains area.
Artists include James Blackwell, Lexodious Dadd, Pam De Groot, Kath Fries, Michael Hoffman, Tony Lennon, Teekee Marloo, Scott Marr, Paula Martin, Brook Morgan, Simon Reece, Bill Samuels, Jacqueline Spedding and Chris Tobin.
