In 2018, BRAG published a book in conjunction with the community art project Art on Farms. Full of stories, photos and artwork about our life on the land, the show and book were a great success.
Copies of Art on Farms are nearly sold out - see the information below to obtain a copy.
Then in December 2020, a year on from the fires that devastated our region, BRAG launched Art on Fire, an exhibition focused on providing an opportunity for everyone in our community to creatively document their experience of that time, and published a corresponding book, also entitled Art on Fire.
The response was overwhelming. Contributions poured in, ranging from painting to poetry, from original music to a few words on a postcard.
The show was opened by Shane Fitzsimmons, the Commissioner of the New South Wales Rural Fire Service between September 2007 and April 2020, who lead the response in NSW.
The opening featured musical performances and readings from the Art on Fire book. Hundreds of people visited the show during the eight days it was open to the public.
