    This poster was designed by Chips Mackinolty at Earthworks Poster Collective for the 'Upper Hunter Valley environment exhibition', organised by Frank Watters. The poster was based a jumper knitted by Frank's sister Marie. The exhibition toured several Upper Hunter Valley towns, and included art works made by community members addressing environmental issues at a time when coal mining was expanding throughout the region.
