Putting the farm into the frame

From Standing Room Only, 12:30 pm on 22 August 2021

Starting new and positive conversations around farming through art is behind what’s believed to be a first of its kind artist’s residency in Aotearoa. Self styled next generation farmers and art lovers Laura and Richard Morrison have set up The Gullies Art Residency at their sheep and beef farm in the Rangitikei, halfway between Whanganui and Palmerston North.  After years of planning, they’ve just announced the first artist to take up the residency, painter digital artist and printmaker Andrew McLeod. Laura Morrison joins Lynn to discuss why she and Richard felt this residency was necessary.
