Running now until June 27 is In the Saddle – On the Wall, a collaboration between five aboriginal owned galleries in the Kimberly and ABC Open (real stories from around Australia). Digital stories are alongside the stunning artworks providing a powerful and personal account of life on the cattle farms for the artists and their elders.
Former Toorak College student, Lorraine Kabbindi White from Western Arnhem Land has her second solo exhibition Kolkiwarra opening on July 2. Lorraine’s work is in the Mimih style of her forebears and inspired by her grandfather – a leader among his people whose works are featured at the National Gallery of Victoria.
NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) week is observed from July 5-12 this year and Baluk Arts in Mornington has curated a number of events to commemorate the occasion. Frankston Indigenous artist Kunda Eamo will have ceramic works on display alongside selected works on paper by Baluk Gallery artists. Bayside Bush Sculptures will be in the glass cube by day, with a projection show by night. Bayside Bush Sculptures are a selection of animals inspired by the bayside and peninsula made from grasses, wool and string in a workshop facilitated by Gunditjmara artist Bronwyn Razem.
NAIDOC week opens with a flag raising ceremony at the Frankston Civic Centre on Monday July 6 at 10:30am followed by a morning tea and galleryviewing across the road at Frankston Arts Centre.
