ART ON FIRE

Exhibition and book launch December 2020

Telling our stories of the 2019 - 2020 bushfires

BRAG invites the community of Braidwood and the villages to join this project! You don't need to be a BRAG member to join in - the whole community is encouraged to participate.

THE EXHIBITION AND BOOK:

BRAG will be hosting a group exhibition and publishing a book of the participants' works about the 2019-20 fires and their aftermath. We are excited to announce that former NSW RFS commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons will open the exhibition in December!

We hope to receive fine art in all media, craft work of all types, as well as poems and essays and even songs from participants. Each participant may enter ONE item in the exhibition. Any aspect of the event or its aftermath is suitable for this exhibition and book. (See below for key dates.)

We will need at least one photo of your work by 20th October in order for it to be in the book, but if you miss this date, your item can still be submitted to the exhibition in December. 

THE POSTCARD PROJECT: "Postcards from Braidwood": If you'd like to participate in a smaller way, just send us a postcard - anonymous if you prefer - with a message or a picture of your experience or thoughts. Your postcard (stiff card, max 10 x 20cm) should be delivered or posted to 45 Wallace Street by 30th November. All postcards will be included in the exhibition. 

BRAG has blank postcards available too; look out for us near the Bank on market days in September and October!

KEY DATES:

19 & 20 OCT: Submission of images/words for the book

30 NOV & 1ST DEC: Submission of work for the exhibition, final day to drop off your postcard

Postmodern, are we not?

The book is just gorgeous! 
Thank you to the writers, photographers and all the featured farmers and artists, as well as Paul at Artplan, who went above and beyond, and our friends at Braidwood Community Bank for their support, so that the participants in the project could receive their copies for free.

Christine did a great job coordinating the exhibition and book, and massing the troops. Thanks Christine!
BRAG would also like to thank all the participants, all the volunteers, and our kind sponsors Braidwood Community  Bank and QPRC.

Martin collaborated with both John Wolesley and Paul Cockram to create visual depictions of his moated dam. Visitors thoroughly enjoyed a walk-through session at Martin's place to see the earthworks and hear about the ideas behind it.
