The Barka (Darling River) by Wendy Murray

Today I had the privilege of spending the time with a group of talented artists from the Broken Hill/Menindee region. Together we produced a series of posters in response to the Barka (Darling River) water crisis. We created the posters using Letraset and screen printing processes - developing the work at The Cross Art Projects and printing at the National Art School.
