Shirley Peters - Strip

What lies beneath Centennial Park? Well, a part of Centennial Park, that is. That’s the subject of a great new exhibition by artist Shirley Peters. Definitely worth checking this one out.

Late last year we were privileged to get a once-in-a-generation peek inside one of Sydney’s most stunning reservoirs – Centennial Park Reservoir No. 1. The post, and the photos we captured, became one of the year’s most clicked on blog posts. See it again here.

Also getting a glimpse beneath was photographer/artist Shirley Peters. This is a fascinating series of paintings from Shirley’s descent beneath Centennial Park and into the reservoir.
