An exhibition featuring three locally and nationally significant artists creating contemporary new art works by responding to the theme of the eucalyptus species, River Red Gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis). The artists, Penny Algar, Lorraine Connelly-Northey and Damien Wright respond to the landscape, the environment and the traditional use in Aboriginal culture, presenting the relationship from both an ecological and spiritual perspective.
