Kate Gorringe-Smith, coordinator of the Flyway Print Exchange project, writes:

‘It has been an exciting week for the Flyway Print Exchange, an environmental art project linking 20 artists from nine countries along the East-Asian–Australasian Flyway…

…after travelling for 59 days and 29,000 km from Melbourne, via New Zealand and Singapore, to Anchorage, Alaska, and then back to Melbourne, the Travelling Prints have arrived back safely!

…the travelled prints will be exhibited alongside their pristine counterparts at the Flyway Print Exchange exhibition to illustrate the journey travelled by Australia’s migratory shorebirds.’

The exhibition opens at the OzAsia Festival in Adelaide on 4 September 2014 then on to its next destination, Melbourne.
