Murrays Cottage

The child of immigrants fleeing war torn Europe, Melbourne based artist Juris Cerins spent his childhood years in the Migrant Camp at Bathurst some 60 years ago. The opportunity to spend a month in Hill End will allow Juris to revisit the region and to create a series of en plein air gouches for exhibition. Juris will explore the experiences of the European migrants who travelled to Hill End in the 1870s through his responses to the village's remote location and the constant reminders of earlier occupation embedded in Hill End's excavated and eroded landscape.
