About the artwork: 

The Midlands Garden 1

Exhibited: The Midlands: Whimsy and Pathos by Mandy Hunniford, Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, Launceston 2019

The aridness of the protracted dry spells in the Midlands, contrasts starkly with the lush splendour of the domestic gardens of the colonial homesteads scattered throughout the area.

Recent irrigation schemes have now altered some parts of the Midlands into lush, farming ground. Funded initiatives for farmers to commit to conservation activities has protected small pockets of threatened natural wildlife and landscapes.
