Opening | Can You Hear The Whispering Walls


Local Yaegl woman, Frances Belle Parker – Visual Artist will transform Eatonsville Hall on Saturday October 22 through a large scale immersive installation creating a space to reflect on past histories.

Eatonsville Halls sits atop a hill overlooking a beautiful but notorious section of the Clarence River which is a constant source of inspiration for the artist and a recurring theme in her practice.

Her installation at the hall will serve as a reminder of the colourful past of this location and offer a space to reflect on the many histories of the area.

To acquaint guests with the hall and its landscape overlooking the Clarence River the afternoon will begin at 5.30pm with champagne, canapés and music on the lawn of the hall. Soft light will draw the audience into the hall to experience the work. Flowing fabric hanging from the rafters, imprinted with imagery and imbued with sound, maps the land, the hall and the people.

Guests are asked to wear white to be part of the artwork.
