“True Story is about sharing stories, Ed & I slowly started developing a relationship between the artwork we were creating and our personal stories, background & experiences. When we were deciding the exhibition name, we reflected on our last months working together and Edward said no one will believe us and I said but it’s a true story! Ed said yes, true story!” Said Chris Edwards.

The exhibition will showcase a collection of large paintings on canvas. A combination of Ed’s bold, imaginative style and Chris’ contemporary work, we are in for a treat. Hope to see you all there supporting this beautiful collaboration.

This residency was possible thanks to the support of Arts MNC who selected the project as a recipient of the Country Arts Support Program.

The Valley Hub acknowledges Gumbaynggirr country, the Ancestors, Elders and Traditional Custodians of the Valley in which we live and work. We thank them for their care of country through time and acknowledge and respect their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.
