Willandra Three Rivers


Willandra Three Rivers has been a partnership project between Western Riverina Arts, the Griffith Regional Art Gallery and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services.

During 2015/16 participating artists (all based in the area of NSW bounded by ‘three rivers’, the Lachlan, Macquarie and Murrumbidgee) travelled to the Willandra National Park for a number of residencies, staying at the old Willandra Homestead. 

Willandra Three Rivers was developed with the aim of bringing artists from different areas of regional NSW together to learn from each other. Local artists Melanie Baulch, Jo-Anne Southorn, Cory Mckenzie and Kerri Weymouth worked alongside five other artists from across regional NSW to create works of amazing variety and quality. 

The Willandra Three Rivers residencies began in 2015 and continued into 2016. The Exhibition outcome was hosted in the Griffith Regional Art Gallery in October 2016 and ran again in January 2017 at the Narrandera Arts and Community Centre. A catalogue which showcased the artists extraordinary work was printed.
