“A Palette of Pioneer Places” by Canberra watercolour artist Isla Patterson exhibited recently at the Hall School Museum and Heritage Centre and is now showing at the Link Art Space until 17th February.
Isla has painted eight historic homesteads within the Parishes of Jeir, Wallaroo and Ginninderra. The exhibition presents the paintings, together with stories of how the land was acquired and the families who once lived there. Five local researchers have worked to assemble personal stories from the homesteads.
“We are all very committed to sharing our history with younger generations” says curator Mardie Troth.
** Saturday and Sunday viewing times are 10am – 4pm**
