New works from the Kimberley, landscape paintings from the Eastern Desert and brilliant colour paintings from the APY Lands of South Australia feature at Everywhen Artspace this month to join a wide variety of other outstanding pieces of Aboriginal art for the Summer Collector’s Show 2020.
“Showing such a wide variety of styles and media of Aboriginal art allows for a huge range of choice for clients and also demonstrates the breadth and range of contemporary Aboriginal art,” says gallery co-director Susan McCulloch.
This summer, Susan says, the role of Indigenous societies in fire management and care of the country and how that is represented in art has become of special interest. “Works by many of the artists we show relate very different creation stories of fire. We donated the proceeds of the sale of a painting to a fundraiser for fire-affected Aboriginal communities of Victoria and southeast NSW, and donated also to wildlife funds. The devastation is deeply shocking and heartbreaking but it’s wonderful to see the outpouring of support.
“Many of the artists we represent are active carers of their lands and work in both fire management and Landcare programs. Their paintings and the work they do as carers of the lands feature in both our current exhibition and especially in our upcoming March exhibition of women’s art to celebrate International Women’s Day.”
The Summer Collector’s Show 2020 runs until February 25. The Colour Purple: Aboriginal Women’s Art opens with a unique art parade presentation of more than 40 works on March 7.
