Local artist Penelope Lawry initiated and co-ordinated the Wall of Wings as a way for local artists and art groups to become part of the Overwintering Project exhibition held at the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery over the summer of 2019-2020.
Artists were invited to contribute prints of individual migratory shorebirds which were then attached directly to the gallery wall. Together they formed a magificent Wall of Wings of the many species that visit the Coffs Coast over the summer.
The Wall of Wings was created by local artists aged 6-94, some of whom had never done printmaking before! Nearly 400 birds were part of this community installation. Contributing groups included - Headspace Art Group, Nambucca Lands Council, Artlink, Coffs Coast Creative Arts Group, Coffs Coast Printmakers, Sawtell Art Group and Woolgoolga Art Group.
