The life and moods of the mighty Murrumbidgee River are the subject of Riverina artist Eva Clark's latest exhibition, Where the Shadows Fall. Featuring works on paper in charcoal, pencil and ink, this exhibition evokes the light and shade of the Murrumbidgee, the water, the trees and the riverbanks, throughout the seasons.

Eva Clark has drawn upon both personal experience and the evolving literature of creativity and imagination to present both the Murrumbidgee of the present day and the splendour it holds for us in our memories. In many of the works on display, the river itself is only glimpsed, the artist having turned her focus to the life of the surrounding bush or the man-made structures with which it coexists. But throughout this exhibition, the drama and emotion of the river, and the central position it holds in the lives of many Riverina residents, are maintained as a constant current.
