Art Now with Text Classics was a part of the 2017 festival. This brilliant exhibition saw local artists interpret passages from classic Australian literature and was so popular that it will tour to Coolah and Dubbo at the end of the year. Artists include: Toni Behrens, Denise Faulkner, Paris Norton, Charles Smith, Warwick Behrens, Dylan Goolagong, Helena Shearman and Kay Norton-Knight.
