"Art Word Place" exhibition is headed to Canberra

Art Word Place, an exhibition developed and curated by Arts North West for Artstate Tamworth will be shown in Canberra at the Regional Australia Institute.

Art Word Place focuses on the interplay between text and image. Writers from the Arts North West region were commissioned to create a short poem based on their home landscape. Selected artists have then drawn on this composition as the basis and inspiration of a new work capturing the identity and sense of place of the New England North West. There are recurring themes – of rivers, plains and sky, of drought, of adversity, but also of optimism.

Regional Australia Institute (RAI) is a think tank devoted to issues concerning regional Australia with a wealth of experience in regional research, policymaking and community consultation.

The Exhibition will be on display at RAI from 9 March to 4 June.
