Caroline Josephs Exhibition

Sat 6 April - Wed 1 May

At the core of life and work for Caroline Josephs are — learning, and relationship. Artist, writer, storyteller, educator, Caroline is an octogenarian.

In this exhibition Caroline will be showcasing her latest project. Immersed, swimming, every day of the year– in an ocean pool, where there are many many fish — she has been deeply fascinated with being more recently introduced to her ancestral fossil fish from Canowindra! (As described by David Attenborough as being in a line of life reaching back millions of years). A number of paintings are being presented – portraits of herself — painting her fish fossil ancestors–360 million years old! Intrigued, she has embarked on further research, with visits to Canowindra Fossil Museum, and the site of the original find…as well as meeting with some of the people involved.

Caroline will also present at Rosnay, two of her children’s books – written and illustrated during 2 years of Covid lockdowns. The books offer a magical way into the big questions of our time — through word and illustrations.
