Australian Embassy, Beijing

In October 08, Dawn’s solo exhibition “Ink,Tea and Coal” was held at the Australian Embassy in Beijing. The show was opened by the Australian Ambassador, Dr Geoff Raby and MP Bill Shorten.

In the following 3 weeks Dawn travelled along the Silk Road from Beijing to Xian the original capital, onto Hua Shan, one of the 5 sacred Taoist mountain, through the Gobi Desert to Dunhuang an oasis town where she viewed one of the worlds largest collections of sacred Buddhist cave paintings and ancient manuscripts, finally ending Tain Chi Lake in the very north west of China.

Her travels are part of an ongoing project exploring links between Europe and Asia interfacing these influences along the Silk Road.
