BAF Alumna Tarli Glover's exhibition opening

In this series of new and recent works, LAND celebrates the changing seasons, the subtle tones of response from the landscape to the loss of water, or the chilling cold. These colours are ones a farmer would recognise, noting the time to plant or harvest or appreciating that it's time to protect from fire. They also reveal a deep love and respect.

LAND is a collection of works that are simultaneously beautiful as well as thought provoking.
