Art at Large to be seen on highway

TWO big billboards on the Pacific Hwy at Ulmarra and South Grafton have joined the Grafton Regional Gallery's Art at Large project.

The Ulmarra billboard is an image by Yamba-based artist Rosie Vesper.

It shows dolphins swimming in clear, blue water and reflects the artist's connection with country and her love of the region's many waterways.

The second billboard for northbound travellers is by Coledale-based artist Robert Moore.

His use of iconic country images and colour instantly relates viewers to the rural culture of the Clarence Valley.

Mayor Richie Williamson said the billboards gave travellers a glimpse of the work of talented local artists, as well as an insight into the culture of the region.

"I am sure people will be inspired by these works and be motivated to spend time in the beautiful Clarence Valley," Cr Williamson said.

The Art at Large project is a multi-site billboard initiative that presents a significant opportunity for artists to display their work in a high-profile format outside the walls of art galleries.

The project has been running since early 2011 and has been made possible through the support of the Clarence Valley Council and Arts NSW.
