Fowlers Gap – Drawing & Painting Field trip – 2010

Fowlers Gap – Drawing & Painting Field trip – 2010

A group of 16 artists participated in a ten day UNSW Art and Design residency program at Fowlers Gap Arid Zone Research Station located on a working sheep station 110 km north of Broken Hill in northwest NSW.

The days were long, hot and dry, and sketching and painting outdoors was sometimes with little protection from the sun apart from hat and long sleeves.  Stopping work only for lunch and dinner allowed many hours of interaction with the harsh, rugged landscape and the changing light throughout the day to create work at the site and then develop it back in the Sydney studios.
