2017 Pencil prelude to the Sea is Sinking

Art Projects and Collaborations 

Smith’s art practice has flourished through the support of research, collaborations, partnerships and working with lobbyists, academics, community groups and governments.  As an effective curator Fern engages and builds relationships across the community to support well received art presentations.

Fern has extensive experience in providing art facilitation to the community. Fern is action orientated working with integrity and values people. 2018-2019-2020 Fern is forming partnerships and collaborations to produce a large interactive immersive installation of an underwater environment inspired by Port Phillip Bay, The Sea is Sinking.

Currently during COVID art projects are still on the boil they are #to hot to handle – our personal response to COVID times and My Horizons visual diary views from my veranda.
