Wide range of contemporary Aboriginal art for Whistlewood summer show
The McCulloch’s at Whistlewood are busy selecting works for their upcoming Summer Salon + Art Parade in January. Like most Whistlewood exhibitions, the Summer Show features more than 50 Aboriginal artworks from around Australia and includes barks and ochres as well as a wide variety of colourful acrylics.
“The most often-heard comment by regular visitors is, ‘it’s always different’,’ says co curator Susan McCulloch. ‘ While we regularly show artists who have a recognisable style and themes for their works, we really enjoy showing a wide variety of different styles of Aboriginal art to demonstrate its wonderful vitality,quality and breadth.”
To this end the McCullochs have devised their unique “Art Parade” format that will open the show. Dubbed ‘speed dating with art’ and an ‘art lecture but with real art instead of slides’ the Art Parade will show more than 50 works of a wide range sizes and prices – from the affordable to large and collectible pieces such as the striking 2.4 metre ‘Stars in the Night Sky’ by Vicki Cullinan from the Pitjantjatjara lands of the southern desert regions.
