Shedding new light on the many facets of rural life and regional communities, Isolation and Connection features new work in textiles and installation by local contemporary artist Lindie Mannion. Incorporating found items from the landscape as well as recycled items from opportunity shops across the Riverina, these complex and multi-layered works offer a new understanding of local history and relationships.

Lindie is currently completing a Masters of Arts Practice at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga. Isolation and Connection revolves around the experiences of her parents, who have lived and farmed in the Mimosa and Methul districts since the mid-1920s, drawing particularly upon Lindie's strong affinity with the family farm, 'Munsterfield', where she was raised.

The body of work unveiled in Isolation and Connection also draws upon many years of research into the local history of community connection, communication and transport, the hardships of drought and flood, and the rural ethos of 'making do'. The installation and textile pieces on display cross many boundaries in both content and medium, incorporating drawing, screen print, photography, and both machine and hand stitching.
