About this event

13 February - 16 May

Herstory by Dubbo based artist Coral Dolan features works that explore and celebrate the lives of women in regional NSW. Inspired by their courageous stories of travelling and settling in isolated areas, Dolan fashions multi-layered works from found ‘women’s objects’, eco printed fabrics, and preserved botanicals; sealing them with preserving wax, with the intent to create artefacts that encapsulate the hitherto untold stories of these women.

Herstory is an exhibition where Dolan sheds light on the importance of preserving these historic personal and cultural stories of regional women, before they risk being forgotten.

This is a HomeGround exhibition, produced by WPCC and supported by Orana Arts.

Curated by Mariam Abboud
