River of Art: Virtual Open Studios - Spotlight For Our Artists

Several of Eurobodalla’s acclaimed artists will be video-featured on the River of Art’s new website to be launched in the runup to this year’s River of Art Festival from 18 to 27 September.

Artists featured include: print maker, Julie Mia Holmes, who's work has been showcased in exhibitions across Australia

painter, Raewyn Lawrence, who was last year’s joint-winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Basil Sellers River of Dreams exhibition;

sculptor, Paul Dimmer, a previous winner of the festival’s River of Art Prize;

textile artist, Bernadette Davis;

print-maker, Mirabel Fitzgerald, whose work is included in the National Gallery of Australia and the Art Gallery of NSW;

Graham Peterkin, furniture designer and maker;

jewellery and bead maker, Virginia Alland;

ceramicist, Jo Victoria;


The feature videos were produced for River of Art by local video-maker, Eva Davis-Boemans, and will form an enduring part of the River of Art’s revamped website and posted onto a dedicated River of Arts YouTube channel.

While COVID-19 restrictions have meant that some festival events can’t go ahead this year, the dilemma has opened up new ways of presenting the region’s art. In addition to the video features, the River of Art website will have an Arts Directory to provide a year-long promotional service for Eurobodalla artists.

Despite the COVID restrictions, the festival will still feature the River of Art Prize, Open Studios, workshops and exhibitions. The program, which will be finalised later this month, and other information can be found on .
