    Camille Swallow “Feel My Footprints”

    Central Highlands award-winning Indigenous artist Camille Swallow, is having her first-ever solo exhibition in the Emerald Art Gallery in May. Her exhibition “Feel My Footprints” is a glimpse into Camille’s life’s narrative.
    Camille’s experiences throughout her life have left their marks, and in her paintings, Camille is able to express those marks in a journey of healing and discovery. Each of Camille’s paintings tell her story through the hours of mark-making and precision that it takes to complete a painting, to the images that come to life on the canvas. She has a spiritual connection to Country which is shown through her artwork in a modernistic multicultural style.
    Camille’s Exhibition will be on display from 8 May – 17 June 2022. Opening Night Friday 6 May at 6.00 pm.
