Laughing Waters Road, Eltham
On Saturday 30 January, there will be a book launch and exhibition of Laughing Waters Road: Art, Landscape and Memory in Eltham.
Since 2001 more than one hundred artists have participated in the Laughing Waters Artist in Residence Program hosted by Nillumbik Shire Council and Parks Victoria. In Laughing Waters Road: Art, Landscape & Memory in Eltham by Jane Woollard, their experiences and art making are woven together with Wurundjeri, European and local family histories to create an evocative account of a special place in a bushy outer suburb of Melbourne.
In addition to the launch event there is a more intimate event ‘On the Couch with Jane’ to be held on Saturday, 6 February from 2pm at Montsalvat where author, Jane Woollard, will sign copies of the book, have a reading and be available to answer any questions.
