SINCE arriving in Grafton recently, our artist in residence Gosia Wlodarczak has been busy working on a number of projects.

This week Gosia will create one of her acclaimed "frost drawings" from Caringa's office window in the Shoppingworld Link, Prince St. In this frost drawing, Gosia will work from behind the glass of Caringa's office window and draw a real-time interpretation of people walking through the Shoppingworld Link.
