Work by Viola Dominello will feature in the upcoming River Marks: Scenes from the Hawkesbury at Edge Art Space, Brooklyn, NSW. The exhibition opens Friday 1st November 2013, from 6 to 8 pm, and will continue until Sunday 17th November.

The Hawkesbury River has long been a site of inspiration for Dominello, and featured strongly in her 2011 solo exhibition at Stella Downer Fine Art. River Marks brings together a group of artists similarly inspired by the region, incuding David Collins, Peter Davis, Kay Donaldson, Jenny Heller, Nellie Hopely, Ana Pollack, Jeanette Prout, Paul Stevens, Sally Stokes, Julia Tuke, Ana Young and Peter Zanetti.


In 2005 Viola Dominello received her Master of Fine Arts from the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales. Prior to this she studied at the University of Foreigners Siena (Italy), Scuola Internazionale di Grafica Venezia (Italy), New York University (USA), Julian Ashton School of Art, Hornsby Technical College and the City Art Institute. Dominello received the Wynne Trustees Watercolour Prize in 2010 and in 2012 she was a finalist in the James Kiwi Watercolour Prize. Since 1989 Viola Dominello has exhibited in over seventy group exhibitions and since 1993 she has had thirteen solo exhibitions including three in Venice, Italy. Dominello was awarded a Borsa di Studio Scholarship from the Italian government on two occasions (1999 & 2003) and she also received an Assistant Fellowship from Scuola Internazionale di Grafica Venezia, Italy (2000). Dominello's work is represented in many collections, including Artbank, Peabody Energy (USA) and Scuola Internazionale di Grafica (Italy) as well as numerous private collections.
