Inspired by their immersive contact with farmers and landscapes, artists including Ros Atkins, Jenny Bell, Jo Davenport, Janet Laurence, Idris Murphy, Tony Nott and John Wolseley reveal an appreciation for and understanding of the natural forces that sustain us.
The Earth Canvas exhibition was developed by regional collaborative Earth Canvas: Art in Ag, curated by Albury LibraryMuseum and supported by the National Museum of Australia. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government's Visions of Australia program.
