...Do you take the scenic route when you go on a road trip? Or do you take the highway?

Focusing on the area of the Hunter Valley, Rebecca Rath takes us on the scenic route through many of the local towns within the valley.

Having painted over 150 small documentary style oil paintings, Rath's large installation will take you back to your childhood…. when a road trip meant the long route with many stops until your destination.
