Spectacular gowns reflecting the landscape and other creative works make up an exhibition that shines a light on the talent of female artists in western NSW.
Women Out Front is a culmination of the work Signal Creative and Outback Arts have been doing with women in Warren and Walgett in the past two years.
The exhibition features the 'Mother Nature Gown', the 'Yellow Belly Gown' and others, printed photos and textiles, as well as a large collaborative wall hanging.
It opened in Coonamble on Thursday, with a dance performance in the street.
"For many of the young artists, it's the first time their work has toured and been a part of a big collaborative exhibition and I'm proud to be a part of supporting these amazing young women," Signal Creative co-director Caroline Wallace said.
The Women Out Front program has already featured local performances from the young women at Warren Central School of the movement piece Drylands Wetlands, comprising sounds of the Tiger Bay Wetlands and original costume and set pieces made by the students inspired by the wetlands.
In Walgett, River Stories, created by the Sista Speak students, was exhibited in the Walgett Library as well as online.
Signal Creative co-director Emma Hoy said: "It's been an incredible two years working on Women Out Front with Outback Arts, we can't wait to see what these exciting new artists come up with next."
