An exhibition of works by printmakers from the Northern Rivers Region of NSW that explores the notion of distance. Footsteps takes this theme of distance as a starting point to consider notions of walking, our personal and physical relationships with place, the physical experience of travel and the methods we use now and have done historically to traverse distance.
The theme aims to examine place and give an insight into our perceptions of Australian space and locality in terms of proximity to the conference site, inviting the viewer to consider where we come from geographically and artistically.
Artists include Julie Barratt, Darren Bryant, Jan Davis, Sarah Harvey, Louise Irving, Gary Jolley, Joanna Kambourian, Jenny Kitchener, Leonie Lane, Anita Lord, Brendan McCumstie, Ross McMaster, Travis Paterson, Rochelle Summerfield, Scott Trevelyan and Christine Willcocks.
