Exhibition Opening > 5.30pm, Friday 25 August 

Poets often write poems about works of art. Now this is reversed. Poets from the 2016 Poetry on the Move festival were invited to write poems about their experience of nature and landscape in Canberra. These are the inspiration for Firth’s textile art.
