Geraldine Berkemeier and Gary Shinfield present a very different take on life with their exhibition River Crossing which focuses squarely on the life of the Hunter River as it weaves its way across the land. Indeed the exhibition River Crossing looks at how we as a population have lived and worked with the river and the results of our interaction with it – good and bad. Using the technique of printmaking Berkemeier and Shinfield have created a lyrical and subtle series that quietly demonstrate both the life and sometimes death of a water course important in this region.
