The artists taking up Donnelly Verandah Residencies in 2017
Kate Campbell-Pope, Jo Darbyshire, Jennifer Hopewell, Michael Knight, Harvey Mullen and Chrissie Parrot will be in residence on the verandahs at Donnelly River Village at various times from
17 July – 21 August 2017.
The artists will each spend a week living one of the cottages in the village and working in the unique Karri forest setting at Donnelly. If you visit the village over this time you will have the chance to see some of the works they produce, exhibited along the verandahs at Donnelly River Village and at the Donnelly River school. Informal artist talks are planned for the final Saturday afternoon of each artist’s stay.
For the first time, a dancer-choreographer joins the group of visual artists spending time, making work and sharing their experiences of Donnelly River.
