Initiated in 2018 the program builds on the property's rich cultural history, providing an inspirational place for artists to pursue their practice. We can't wait to see the fruits of Gina's time spent in this magnificent landscape.

Melissa says of her painting 'Tree Symphony', oil and beeswax on canvas 135 x 112cm, "Through colour harmony, structural juxtaposition, and paint process I hope to create a feeling of joy or surprise; as if the elements are all singing together and have an innate energy.
