Margaret Ackland's new body of work Arid Zone showcases her experience of the Fowlers Gap landscape, situated 112 kilometres north of Broken Hill. The title of the exhibition refers to the University of New South Wales Arid Zone Research Station, where Ackland and 12 other artists undertook a two week residency. Ackland's paintings consider the extreme conditions of the area and its impact on the lives and psyches of those who once occupied the region.
