As part of the Bridgetown Fridgetown Fest, The Donnelly Verandah Residencies provide an opportunity for artists to immerse themselves in the unique Karri Forest at Donnelly River where imposing old-growth Karri-stands dominate a 1950s mill town.
Artists undertake their residency for just over a week and stay in one of the 35 cottages in the village with the intention that the forest surroundings will provide a ground for creativity and artistic development.
Well-known Western Australian artists Tim Burns, Sarah Thornton-Smith, Sarah Elson, Annette Peterson,
Ross Potter and Nic Comptonwill take part in the seventh annual verandah residencies at Donnelly River Village in June 2023.
A Perth-based exhibition of selectedworks by this year’s artists willbe held from 15-24 September, 2023.
