Homecoming | A Dogwood Crossing, Miles Exhibition Curated by Annabelle Brayley
John Mullins Memorial Art Gallery, Curved Wall & Foyer
11 November 2018 – 15 January 2019

Homecoming, a local perspective: navigating the experience of returning from conflict is a commemorative Anzac exhibition instigated by the Dogwood Crossing Gallery committee.  The exhibition is the culmination of collecting and interpreting stories of ‘homecoming’ from arenas of conflict – World War One to the present – from returned service personnel, their families and communities with a connection to the Western Downs. An additional aspect of the exhibition is the response to selected exhibition stories by eight regional artists. As first responders their input enriches the exhibition and encourages visitors in their own response to the exhibition. The outcome of this exhibition will showcase the service and commitment of our regions citizens to their community and country and by extension the work and support of families, women and community members who remained at home to engage with the resulting circumstances.  These stories collected and interpreted by curator Annabelle Brayley will invite reflection and contemplation and an insight into the continual process of building community spirit and identity.
