LAST DAYS - TRACES IN A LANDSCAPE: ON THE EDGE OF GRETA

Open 12-5pm Thursday - Saturday + last day: Sunday 27 May, 12 - 3pm

Traces in a Landscape: On the Edge of Greta is a protest against forgetting, and aligns with the political sub-texts often found in the work of Elizabeth Ashburn and Vivienne Dadour through their aim to reveal what has been obliterated, ignored, hidden or obscured. Using photography, watercolour and drawing the artists express the presence/absence dimension of landscape that was once teeming with immigrants displaced by the conflict in Europe during the Second World War, in what became known as the Greta Migrant Camp, located on the edge of the town of Greta in the Hunter Valley of NSW.
