COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the most recent NSW Health advice and COVID-19 restrictions, Woodford Academy will remain closed throughout July so this event has been postponed.
Woodford Academy welcomes Yvette Hamilton, their new Artist In Residence. Yvette will deliver a talk on her evolving art practice and her fascination with the Academy’s astronomical history.
Using photographic and archival resources, Yvette Hamilton delves into the history of Alfred Fairfax’s role in the observations of the Transit of Venus at Woodford Academy in 1874. Yvette explores the significance and value of the light-pollution-free ‘dark skies’ of the Blue Mountains region, which links the past to the present and the future.
