This residency was possible thanks to the support of Arts Mid North Coast, who selected the project as a recipient of the Country Arts Support Program.

“True Story is about sharing stories,” Chris said.

“Ed and I slowly started developing a relationship between the artwork we were creating and our personal stories, background and experiences.”

The exhibition will showcase a collection of large paintings on canvas; a combination of Ed’s bold, imaginative style and Chris’ contemporary work.

True Story is on display at the Nambucca Valley Phoenix until the end of May.
