    10.09.14 TWIG Residency with Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery

    Fred Fowler has undertaken a 10-day farm based residency hosted by the Swan Hill Regional Gallery in north-western Victoria.

    The TWIG residency program aims to increase dialogue between art and agriculture by pairing artists with farming families, providing the artist an opportunity to experience life on a farm and develop artwork in response to their time on the property. In turn the farmer also produces artwork responding to their experiences with the visiting artist.

    The residency concludes with an informal event on the farm where the artworks completed can be shared with the broader farming community.
