See an extraordinary exhibition that includes paintings, photographs and artifacts by descendants of the Cook family, an aboriginal family of the Barrington region and one of the traditional owners of the area. Living descendants of the Cooks, Pauline Syron-Coxon and Robert Leslie Syron, will both be in attendance to discuss the artworks and the significance of the links back to Country.
Pauline was born and raised at Bulahdelah and now lives in the Snowy Mountains painting from her art studio and gallery. Pauline will be displaying the extensive research into the family tree of her ancestor Jack Cook (Mulakat was his traditional name), who was the last initiated man of the Barrington Tops, plus details about the relationship of his family with the environment.
