War at Sea

OPENS SATURDAY JULY 1ST 2017

 

A traveling exhibition from

Australian National Maritime Museum,  Sydney

 

One hundred years ago, on 14 September 1914, Australia’s first submarine AE1 disappeared while patrolling the seas near present day New Guinea. No trace of the vessel or its 35 hands has ever been found to this day.

 

The experiences of Australian sailors in World War I has largely been overshadowed by the stories of soldiers on the Western Front or at Gallipoli. This Australian National Maritime Museum traveling exhibition draws on the personal accounts of Navy servicemen – through their diaries, mementos, ship’s logs and letters home – to tell their incredible stories of bravery and sacrifice amidst the drudgery of life at sea, patrolling, blockading and escorting troopships.

 

This exhibition is being presented in the Shoalhaven through a partnership between the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum and the Fleet Air Arm Museum.

Artist Barbara Dawson's work explores a connection with place and the environment.

 

After living all her life in Canberra she now lives in Jervis Bay with it’s the ever-changing colours and backdrops.  Barbara’s inspiration of place explores the beaches and shorelines of the bay, the forests of the National Parks or the mountains that are the skyline of Canberra.   She has drawn on this inspiration for the collagraph prints and the oil drawings, using stitch in her work to add to the journey and her crossings over the land.
