Artist Name:
Kate Teal-Spicer
Labor Durus Femina
About the artwork:

'Labor Durus Femina' is about the hardworking women of the Hunter. In the painting you can find reference to multiple professions: farming, vineyards, fishing, hospitality, chefs, receptionists, working on the city council, scientists, doctors and nurses, librarian, teachers, tourism and travel, and more! It's a celebration of women living their lives here and some of the things the Hunter is nationally and internationally known for.
