This exhibition showcases the work of contemporary artists residing in the Blue Mountains region. Through a variety of media including digital animation and embroidery they investigate the colonisation of the landscape and the slippage between the past and the present. Artists include Ben Denham, Adrienne Doig, Rachel Peachey, and Joan Ross.
