Hazel Dooney

In 2001 ten Australian artists (Jason Benjamin, Hazel Dooney, Robert Jacks, David Larwill, Jeff Makin, John Olsen, Rodney Pople, Mark Schaller, Andrew Sibley and Tim Storrier) visited and worked in some of the most remote areas of central Australia including Lake Eyre, Coober Pedy, Dalhousie Springs, Chambers Pillar, Alice Springs, Kings Canyon, Uluru (Ayers Rock), and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas).

Chosen for their diverse range of styles and generational mix these artists produced a body of work from which a selection was made to create an exhibition that reflects their interpretations of the Central Australian landscape. 

William Creek and Beyond
, a Ballarat Fine Art Gallery Touring Exhibition from 2003 to 2005, was based on the 'William Creek & Beyond' book by Ken McGregor with artist profiles by Ashley Crawford and photography by Hari Ho, with thanks to the Deague Family Art Foundation.
