2017 saw Ashmeads Swamp come to life from the starkly beautiful place that it is. The dead trees of the ancient Red Gum swamp both a sad reminder of what has been lost and an inspiration for renewal.
The Water Gallery was a project designed, produced and executed by indigenous artist Troy Firebrace and contemporary artist Bailey Bish. The project merged both indigenous and non-indigenous artists in creating a culturally significant landmark on the site. The project was implemented to coincide with the Benalla Wall to Wall Festival in 2017.
2018 will see the introduction of further art into our landscape.
