Art Exhibition

The Overwintering Project is an environmental art project designed to raise awareness for Australia’s most endangered birds - migratory shorebirds - and their habitat. Artists from Australia and New Zealand have joined to shed light on these birds that spend summer on our beaches, only to fly c. 12,500 km north to breed annually above the Arctic Circle. The Nan Giese exhibition, which is timed to coincide with the 2019 Australasian Ornithological Conference, will feature works selected from the Overwintering Project Print Portfolio, by CDU students and local artists. The exhibition is free, and AOC conference delegates are warmly invited to attend and experience for themselves this visual testament to the importance of these amazing birds and the habitat on which they rely.

Opening: Friday 28 June, 2019
Exhibition runs: Fri 28 June – Fri 19 July 2019
