Several of Eurobodalla’s acclaimed artists will be video-featured on the River of Art’s new website to be launched in the runup to this year’s River of Art Festival from 18 to 27
Artists include painter, Raewyn Lawrence, who was last year’s joint-winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Basil Sellers River of Dreams exhibition; sculptor, Paul Dimmer, a previous winner of the festival’s River of Art Prize; print-maker, Mirabel Fitzgerald, whose work is included in the National Gallery of Australia and the Art Gallery of NSW; Graham Peterkin, furniture designer and maker; jewellery and bead maker, Virginia Alland; textile artist, Bernadette Davis; ceramicist, Jo Victoria; and print maker, Julie Mia Holmes.
The video features which were produced for River of Art by renowned video-maker, Eva
Davis-Boemans (https://evadavisb.wixsite.com/freelance) will form an enduring part of the River of Art’s revamped website and will also be posted onto a dedicated River of Arts YouTube channel.
The videos can be found on our website.
While COVID-19 restrictions have meant that some festival events can’t go ahead this year, the dilemma has opened up new ways of presenting the region’s art. In addition to the video features, the River of Art website will have an Arts Directory to provide a year-long promotional service for Eurobodalla artists.
